G-Drive won't eject

My new 4 TB G-Drive will not eject with out restarting the computer. It says other applications are using the drive. I have closed all other apps and still no go. I read that reformatting the drive would solve the problem so I reformatted the drive and problem still persist. Is this something I am going to have to live with? Hesitant to load up 4 TB of data to a drive that does not perform properly.

Thanks for the information

How about Anti-Virus software - if you have it running then you might need to exclude the drive so it’s not locking it.
