Everything prevents ejection of USB drive

Post by unknownsoldierx » Sun Oct 20, 2019 4:22 am

Windows 10 x64 build 1903
Everything 1.4.1.935 x64
External USB drive is NTFS.

I want Everything to index the drive, and it works great, but I can never eject the drive unless I exit Everything.

What type of drive?
Flash "thumbnail" drive? HDD in an enclosure? ...
Size?

Western Digital 8TB Elements (USB 3.0 enclusure.)

Drive is already indexed in Everything.

I plug in the drive, and no matter how long i wait, I can't eject the drive until I exit Everything. I can always eject the drive immediately after exiting it.

Still hoping for a solution to this.

Still happens every time I try to eject the drive. I've found that it produces an entry in the event log.
The application \Device\HarddiskVolume3\Programs\Everything\Everything.exe with process id 11200 stopped the removal or ejection for the device USB\VID_1058&PID_25A3\37484B585345414E.

Try the nightly, viewtopic.php?f=2&t=5718, as that has some changes related to "removals", & see if that makes any difference?


(I rarely reboot, & had gone to "eject" my S: drive, a HDD plugged into a USB adapter, & would only get an "in use" message. [Didn't think to use https://www.nirsoft.net/utils/opened_files_view.html at the time.] Anyhow, on seeing that, I ended up closing everything [including Everything], to no avail. Still couldn't successfully remove the drive. So at that point, I just rebooted. Since restart, I'm back to being able to remove S:, as expected. IOW, in my case, my issue appeared to not be Everything related.)
