The Thunar Volume Manager is an extension for the Thunar file manager, which enables automatic management of removable drives and media.

The advantage of Thunar Volume Manager over other solutions (like gnome-volume-manager or ivman) is that it does not require an additional daemon to be running in the users desktop session, which means it is a very lightweight solution. In addition, the Thunar Volume Manager smoothly integrates into the Thunar file manager and the Xfce desktop.

It was designed to look and behave similar to gnome-volume-manager to get consistent removable drive and media management in Xfce and GNOME. This is to help GNOME refugees and people using both Xfce and GNOME.

Please check the official user manual for installation and usage instructions.
