Varies between cinnamon versions -

Try
Cinnamon Settings > Desktop - uncheck "Show mounted volumes on the desktop"
or
System Settings > Desktop ...

Edit: Reading altair4's reply below - I may have misunderstood the question :oops:

But .....For the clock:
Click Clock > Date and Time Settings
Click "Switch to Advanced Mode" if haven't already (this only needed If using Cinnamon 1.8+)
On the line - Date format for the panel - try this for the time section after the date:
Code: Select all
%-I:%M%P

I assume you mean you have an entry in /etc/fstab to have these non-system partitions automount?

Change mount points. Anything mounted to your home directory or to /media/Something will display a mount icon on the desktop. But if you mount it to /mnt/Something ( for example ) it will not.
Please add a [SOLVED] at the end of your original subject header if your question has been answered and solved.
