The tooltip content for unmounted partitions should be extended. Right now it contains something like "remote storage, not mounted". It should also contain the full filesystem label to make it clear what exactly it is. The desktop icon has only the truncated value of the filesystem label. Depending on the naming scheme for filesystems they look all alike. One would need to select each icon to see the full name.
Thanks for the proposals.
I agree on both.
Though please open a seperate bug against xfdesktop regarding the truncated value of the filesystem label, since that is not related to thunar.
