Post subject:  Error when trying to unplug USB drives

Hi,

When trying to disconnect my USB drives "Seagate Freeagent Pro 500 GB, 750GB & 1TB" one of the drives almost 100% of times get this following error:

X:\
X:\$Extend\$RmMetadata\$TxfLog\$TxfLog.blf
X:\$Extend\$RmMetadata\$TxfLog\$TxfLogContainer0000000000000000000001
X:\$Extend\$RmMetadata\$TxfLog\$TxfLogContainer0000000000000000000002

Any ideas?

Hi,

Please, read this information. If this help, then we will add this feature in the next version of 'USB Safely Remove'.

Quote:

This is a known bug in XP that seems to be still present in Vista.
When a save removal is tried Windows can send a message about that
and all processes that hold open but non essential handles should
close them now. But the indexing service doesn't care.

My commandline tool RemoveDrive can prepare a drive for save removal:

Started with parameter -i it stops the indexing service for a moment.
Horrible workaround, but it works...
Sample:

removedrive u: -i

For stopping a service admin previleges are required.


Greetings from Germany

Hi Nikolay,

The "RemoveDrive" tool fails aswell.

Ase, can you also check policy for your device.
You should set "Optimize for quick removal" option.

Hi,

I did a reinstallation of my OS, just to be sure....
All 3 drives still shows the same problem when trying to disconnect them.

Anyone else suffering of this problem?

Ase, I'm sorry for the delay. Am I understand right, that you have set your drives settings to "Optimize for safe removal" (and even did re-install of OS) but the problem still persists?

Hi Igor,

You understand me correctly.
