This especially happens when I open a .tib file by simply double clicking on it on my external USB drive, but also seems to happen after a variety of things I may do using the .tib files and TI. I'm using Echo Workstation. I used Home 2009 for a long time and this never happened until I started using Echo Workstation so this is a new problem, not typical for my computer or this external drive at all. I've used the same external drive for a long time. It only started doing this recently when I started using Echo Workstation and only happens when I use .tib files on it. After I am done, I close everything and right click on the Safely Remove Hardware icon. I then see USB Mass Storage Device. I click Stop. It then shows USB Mass Storage Device, Generic Volume (E: ) and WD 6400AK External USB Device. I try stopping them all repeatedly. It says every time: Problem Ejecting USB Mass Storage Device "The device 'Generic volume' cannot be stopped right now. Try stopping the device again later." I wait a while and this still happens. There is no way to safely remove the drive. I then have to use Process Explorer. In Process Explorer, under Explorer.exe, it will have that .tib file listed and I close the handle. Then safe remove works and it finally says "Safe to remove hardware". This is very annoying. I don't want to have to use Process Explorer every single time to remove the drive. It's both a hassle and also seems a bit unsafe. I talked about this some toward the end (like post #10 and on) of this thread: http://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=240889 But nobody has helped me figure out how to stop this behavior. Please help. Thanks.
