I would like to have removable drives show up on the dock every time one is plugged in. Is this possible?

Maybe a udev rule could do this if it is not a feature of Plank?

  • As far as I know, plank only comes with the default docklets. The only other I have been able to find was a CPU monitor here.

I'd recommend installing Docky instead of Plank (https://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/203803/replace-plank-with-docky-in-elementary-os). And then enabling the "Mounter" docklet to show what drives are mounted.

    Thanks for the suggestion, but I prefer not to use Docky, personally. Maybe this may help someone else though so I will still upvote.
