Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

When I try and unmount my iomega portable hard drive it insists that it is busy and, therefore, can not eject. This is a problem because the only way I can remove the hard drive is by unplugging it, since it will never eject the drive off of my computer. I have no clue why.

Usually when you can not "unmount" the external device it is because the computer sees it as still running an operation. If it is the backup software you may be able to go into Task Manager and stop the process, the unmount the device. Also, if it is the backup software, I would reinstall it,

External hard drives are portable storage devices you can use to back up files or transfer content from one computer to another quickly and safely.

While external hard drives vary in design and storage capacity, turning them off properly is ideal because it decreases the chances of damaging or corrupting files.

Whether you are using Windows or Mac OS X, you can safely eject and turn off your external hard drive in minutes.

Safely eject your external hard drive before turning it off if you have connected it to your computer.

To do so, click the "Safely remove hardware" icon on the system tray on the taskbar. T
he hardware window launches.


Click your external hard drive's icon in the hardware window and click the "Stop" button. You should see the "This device can now be safely removed from your computer" dialog message.

Press the "Power" button to turn off your external hard drive.
Some external hard drives turn off automatically when you safely eject them.

Right-click your external hard drive's icon on the desktop if you are using a Mac, and then click "Eject."

Alternatively, drag your external hard drive's icon from the desktop to the "Trash" bin.
You should no longer see your hard drive on the desktop.

Press the "Power" button to turn off your external hard drive

Iomega 1TB desk top won't eject.


Some of the iomega hard drives don't communicate with Windows XP very well. Ejecting isn't needed, but you simply unplug it. Just make sure you are not accessing it at that time. You can also shutdown the computer and unplug it then. Restarting the computer may also allow you to eject it.
Hope this helps! Rate my solution!

Try running Scandisk on the drive. If that fails it's time to reformat the drive.
