Hey guys, I know its said to be bad practice ot just pull out the USB of an external hard drive, but I literally cannot help it! Everytime I try to eject the Drive safely, whether it be Windows 7 or Windows 10, I get this problem… (I close all the windows that could possibly use it) However when yesterday I tried testing it, I could never replicate it… I tried -using a file, then closing and it ejected fine -using a file, putting comp to hibernate, still ejected fine -tried using a file, putting it to hibernate, waking it, and then hibernate and wake once more, still ejected fine. But everynow and again I get this! Why does Windows do this??
mainly this type of error occurs due to some virus continuously accessing external drives. try checking for virus using malwarebytes.
