Question about Seagate FreeAgent Go 120 GB USB 2.0 Hard Drive
I have just bought a new 120gb and after backing up last night it wouldnt allow me to eject - message was "generic volume cannot eject now, try again later". I closed every possible thing on my computer and tried continually over a period of approx 3 hours. Eventually left it hibernating overnight and this morning I still could not eject. I eventually just took out 2 the USB cables.
Please could you therefore answer 2 questions :
1. Will there be a problem due to my unplugging the 2 USB cables without properly ejecting first?
2. How do you eject if you keep on getting this message and what must I do?
Would appreciate any help as soon as you can.
Thanks a lot.
The only reason for the display "generic volume cannot eject now, try again later" is because it is still being accessed by your PC. This may be due to considerable large file size being transferred and/or being backed up, virus scan, a utility is still doing its work.
To answer your concerns:
1. Will there be a problem ...
Normally no, but yes it does happen. It happens when the actual physical removal of the USB connector(s) is not a continuous single motion.
2. How do you eject ... Shut down/power off your PC, once off remove and reboot.
Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
