I noticed that in Gnome 3.18 in Fedora 23 that the removable disks like my USB backup drive no longer appear in the sidebar when I plug it in.

It does still automount and if I click on Other Locations the drive shows up. But I want it obviously available, not hidden off in a corner somewhere.

How can I put it back in the sidebar with the eject icon and all that?

My 'workaround' was to mount it the first time then add it as a bookmark; so far I had no problem with my external HD and a couple of remote Samba shares.

I did try that but I really want the eject button. I may try a shell extension.

Hi Zan, try this one available in the official repo: gnome-shell-extension-drive-menu.noarch
