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:
http://www.uwe-sieber.de/files/removedrive.zip

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

Uwe

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?
