OS9 Finder till now - 06/10/14 05:23 AM

Sucked then.. and still frakking sucks.

I force quit Finder and it releases the drive.

Ugh. Really Apple?

I have this problem on several Macs.... and it's exactly as it's written on this MacRumors page.

Sometimes I discover the Finder is "using" the drive when it's showing a preview of a selected file on that drive. If you're trying to eject the drive, try making sure none of your Finder windows has that drive/file on that drive selected (or simply close them all first). Doesn't work all the time, but it sure is nice when it does ...

At least an OS X force quitting the Finder doesn't lock the whole computer like OS 9 usually did.

If you go to disk utility can you eject it then?

You must realize, Apple is a little short on cash, they really can't afford to make this stuff just work right. smirk

Dr. Dre is working on the problem as we speak.
