    Build 10162 - Cannot eject USB drives problem re-appeared

    Hi there

    I thought this problem had been fixed -- apparently not.

    Can't eject USB drives - also can't find out what process is using it.

    I can't reproduce it on my end. This is after a clean install of the OS.
    Can you give us more details about your system and USB drives?

    Did you by some chance mount and ISO to copy to the USB. If so, unmounting ejecting where it shows as a dvd will allow the USB to eject

    I am no longer having this problem. It went away with 10158 and it still works with 10162, fingers crossed.
    I did updates from 10130 to 10158 to 10162.

    Good luck.
