Safely Remove Hardware and Eject Media keeps telling me that the device is currently in use, close any programs or windows that might be using the device.
I understand why it is telling me this, but even after I signed out of this forum and closed every single task I had open, it keeps telling the same thing. For that matter, I have not done anything except click on and look at the drive to be sure it was working and Norton scanned it a few hours ago.

Am I missing something? I have opened Task Manager, but I do not see anything that sticks out in Processes.

As long as nothing is being written to it you can eject it.
You may want to lose Norton, you don`t need it.

System processes sometimes lock onto usb drives and hold them hostage. Signing out is not enough. The only way to get whatever process to release them is a restart . This happened a lot with me and I found an excellent little program called USB Safely Remove that I've used for years in place of Explorer's safely remove. This program does what explorer's does, but has the added option of letting you force the release of the process thereby eliminating the need for a restart.

It's rare for me to disagree with the experienced members here and this is one time I do. That statement is 100% correct 99% of the time when nothing is being written, but it's the 1% that concerns me. I have had flash drives get corrupted by removing them just because I thought they were idle. With USBSR I am never in doubt.

Care to elaborate on either of your suggestions?

I have sent an email to the USB Safely Remove asking them about compatibility issues as the website only lists up to Win 10.
I'd be highly surprised if it didn't work, under all the new visuals W11 isn't a million miles from W10. I'm sure @glasskuter is using it on W11 otherwise it wouldn't have been suggested

1) You can eject a removable device safely as long as nothing is being written to it.
2) A lot of people think Norton is garbage and causes more trouble than it`s worth.

Norton could be holding onto your device and causing the popup about ejecting it.
Check your drives, do they have green checkmarks on them ?
Keep troubleshooting til you figure it out.

You may want to lose Norton, you don`t need it.
Why get rid of Norton it's his AV and at the end of the day it's the OP's choice to use it and it's as good if not better than a lot of them, It's just that people don't seem to agree with paying for AV and a lot of people don't like Norton

I'm using the same copy I used back in Windows 7. It works fine. I bought it way back when it was cheap. It is not so cheap these days. You might want to look into some of these free alternatives listed in this article. One of them may work just as well.

Why get rid of Norton it's his AV and at the end of the day it's the OP's choice to use it and it's as good if not better than a lot of them, It's just that people don't seem to agree with paying for AV and a lot of people don't like Norton
That`s what I said :)

To find out what's preventing 'safely remove..' first go to task manager and on the heading right click and tick the box for showing PID. Once showing then left click the heading to show in ascending order.

Open Event viewer, Custom Views, Administrative Events. In the centre pane look for Event ID 225. They should be at or near the top of the list. Open the individual events and check the General tab for info and the Details tab should show the PID.
Go back to task manager and find the PIDs. Sometimes Intel Driver Support Assistant does this for me and ending the task in task manager releases the USB drive.

A lot of people think Norton is garbage and causes more trouble than it`s worth
@CornishRattler HELMET? HELMET? I don't need no stinking helmet. :p
As an antivirus, Norton must be good since it is high in ratings most anywhere you look. As a resource hog, it's good at that too.

I think I followed along as well as I could as some of what you said and show is a little different on my machine, but it looks like the PID is 4

Check for more 225 events as that is just a symptom of what's stopping the USB removal. There should be more than one showing.

Don't feel bad @blasirl. @Fabler2 is as sharp as a tack, but that's way above my paygrade too. I could restart way faster than having to go through all that. The event viewer is a confusing place for me.

Check for more 225 events as that is just a symptom of what's stopping the USB removal. There should be more than one showing.
There are many, but they all say the same thing. I did just verify that the USB drive is the boot drive though on this thread.

Seeing your other thread the USB drive is a cloned drive so will have the same signature of the C drive I believe so Windows might think it's a system drive so won't allow you to remove. In this case a shutdown would be the way to remove it I would think.

Edit forgot to say that ProcessId 4 is the system process.

OK. I just posted in that thread that the script data and Explorer/Disk Manager are saying opposite things. Explorer thinks my 500GB drive is the boot drive and the script reports it is my 2TB external, so that may explain it. Thanks for taking the time to help me.
