If you tried to stop your external hard drive with it open in Windows Explorer, You will get this message. You cannot disconnect the drive in this condition. Even if you close Windows Explorer after, Windows still thinks it is open. The best thing to do, is restart Windows and when the screen goes black, shut the power off to the external drive or disconnect the USB cable. Disconnecting in any other way causes Windows to have problems with USB devices in the future.

Two people above are retarded. It's a well known issue that M$ is too lazy to fix. Technically , closing programs that are using files/folders on the usb should work, but 99% of the time it doesnt work. Your best bet is to shut down windows, then unplug the usb device .

Some software in windows might be accessing the drive in background, use a software like USB unlocker so that you can close the software trying to access your drive.
