I am using Win10. Apparently some ransomware hacking attacks can corrupt any attached USB etc drives, so I wish to remove the My Passport backup drive when not actively in use.
When I click the Eject My Passport, I get an error message “Windows is unable to stop the device… Close any programs using this device …”
As far as I knew, no relevant programmes were being run. I went to Task Manager and ended the 3 WD tasks listed. After this when trying to do the eject, I still get the same error message.
How do I safely remove the USB My Passport after a backup?
