    Programs/services preventing me from ejecting my external HDD.


    I have few programs and services that appear to be preventing me from ejecting my external HDD. These appear in event viewer as event 225. One of them is Windows Defender (msmpeng.exe) preventing disk ejection. Why would WD be preventing ejection of this disk?

    Additionally I would like to make my external HDD stay asleep and only wake when I access the disk directly. Currently it is woken whenever I open File Explorer. Is that possible?

    :)

    PID 4 - System/ntoskrnl.exe

    Why could this be preventing ejection?

    Maybe it's using the external disk for page file or something?
