    Ejecting Flash Drive Issue


    Hi!Why is it every time I insert a flash drive then ejecting it, It's always saying that the drive is in use even though I don't have any running applications in the background? I tried formatting the drive not quick, inserting the drive, and eject it after a few seconds but still, issue is present. But if I click try again a few times, it will eject at some point, like after 1-2 tries. The image is attached below for reference.I tried ejecting the flash drive via the taskbar and it seems to be no problem. Why is there's always an error when I try to eject via Windows Explorer?PS. I also did

    :)

    ejecting flash drives

    I forgot where I posted this issue. I still have the issue but sometimes I get the message safe to eject and sometimes I don't.
    I want it to tell me it is safe. I do not want to set a policy or anything. I am telling the truth I had a 64 GB flash drive and yes this was an issue in Windows 7 also it would do it sometimes. But that 64 GB drive is now dead because I was unable to use the eject I even let it sit for a few hours and it still said it was busy.
    I ejected it anyway by pulling it out. Now like I said that 64 GB flash drive is dead. This is why I want it to tell me it is safe to eject.

    ejecting flash drives

    I have been having this issue. I get the issue fixed and it comes back. I do not like to just pull a flash drive out. It will damage them and they cost too much.It seems to be an issue in Windows 10 2004 but IDK for sure. When I right click the icon down by the clock the USB flash drive icon.

    I right click and select eject usually I get a message same to eject. Nothing shows no message. But if I click the message icon I see a message where it shows safe to eject. It just does not show me without looking.
