Thunar-volman wants to mount a partition from my 3rd HD

i switched back to user "phil" and there was an authentication prompt asking me to authenticate for an application wanting to do amount and it gave manufacturer info for 2 of my hard drives.  searching processes i found Thunar-volman, forked from Thunar --daemon, trying to mount /dev/sdc4, which is a backup space for /dev/sda4 (/home).  i am not running anything in user "phil".  backups are not running and when it does, it runs as root and mounts what it needs without prompting (maybe i should add that).  so, i am curious what triggered this.  no process is running mount.  looking around more, i find that every logged in user has Thunar-volman trying to do this and sdc1 is mounted in /media.  should i cut off the internet?

i clicked Cancel on that prompt in user "phil" and all 5 of those Thunar-volman processes went away.
