Re-mount disk read only in Mac OS X

You have connected an external disk. You want to re-mount it read-only.

What you do is you list the disks, pick the partition you are interested in, unmount it and then mount again with readOnly option:

  • diskutil list
  • diskutil unmount /dev/disk2s1
  • diskutil mount readOnly /dev/disk2s1
