    Why is Windows ALWAYS unable to eject my device on first try?


    I use a USB stick to synchronize my data between two laptops. Before removing I always try to be a nice guy and I properly "Eject" the device by right-clicking the task manager icon and selecting the stick.

    But why do I EACH and EVERY time get the message that Windows is currently unable to eject the device because it is still busy. When I do the same a second time, it is always "Safe to remove the device...".

    I find that quite annoying! Why is that always so and why can't Windows simply internally try a few times and then report success on first attempt?

    Yeah I've noticed that, too, with Windows 10. Generally the message means that something is still accessing the device.

    To be honest I haven't cared enough to investigate the actual cause, but I'm posting to let you know that you're not the only one.
