Solid.StorageAccess objects retrieve information about the accessibility of
storage on a machine. It also allows interaction, like mounting and unmounting. The
table below shows the data for your machine.

We use Solid.Device.allDevices () to get a list of all devices, and then
filter it for Solid.StorageAccess types.
