My disk position looks like this:

# df -HP
Filesystem             Size   Used  Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda2              256G   177G    67G  73% /
/dev/sda1              510M    18M   467M   4% /boot
tmpfs                  8.5G      0   8.5G   0% /dev/shm
//   2.0T   865G   1.2T  44% /mnt/windowsabc
//   2.0T   865G   1.2T  44% /windosabc1
//     2.0T   865G   1.2T  44% /mnt/windowsabc1

I would like to know how to unmount the "shared_by_shantanu" setting since that is obsolete now.

The command is umount.

umount /mnt/windowsabc
umount /windosabc1

Simply use the umount command followed by the path where each share is mounted:

umount /mnt/windowsabc
umount /windosabc1
umount /mnt/windowsabc1

Then remove the relevant entries from /etc/fstab to avoid them being mounted again at system boot.

Note that only the superuser can use umount in most cases (depending on fstab entries). You may need to use sudo or su. – CarlF Jun 24 '11 at 12:25
