Dolphin: prevent devices to be mounted by default

I had mounted the devices once in Dolphin and since then they are automatically remounted after every boot, even after I unmounted them manually.

How can I prevent this?

I am relatively new to systemd, but as far as I have read, there should be some .mount or .automount in /etc/systemd. But it does not.
The only thing I found is kded_device_automounterrc in my ~/.config, but I have no idea how I need to change that file.

Any hints?

How about:

System settings > Hardware: Removable Storage > Removable Devices

Un-check the On Login and On Attach boxes.

Thnx. It fixed it.
But I’m still confused, because thats all internal HDDs…

Instead of system settings which is for all your secondary drives install gnome-disk-utility and launch it, select that drive on the leftside, now on the rightside where the drive is now shown click the first button under it to unmount it if it’s mounted, once unmounted select the second button and select Edit Mount Options, in the new dialog toggle off User Session Defaults. You should be good to go then.
