Microsoft Windows 10 Home
Version 10.0.17134 Build 17134
Drive is set up with 3 partitions. The only backup software I’m running is Google Backup & Sync. Using WD Discovery and the standard Windows 10 eject function, I get error messages that the drive is in use, even after I pause Google.
As a last resort, I turn off the computer entirely and the WD external drive is still running and the white light is on. What could the drive possibly be doing if the computer is off?
If the drive is still running, is there any harm in unplugging it?
