    How to unmount drive?

    I mounted Anniversary Update.iso and successfully upgraded Win10. I further updated from 393.0 to 393.10. In both instances afterwards, the empty drive remained.

    How do I unmount it? Context menu offered no option.

    Disk Management doesn't list it at the top panel. While it shows in the bottom panel, there are no options to get rid of it.

    Do you see eject on the right click context menu?

    Hello pyramid,

    If you don't have an "Eject" option posted above, then you might see if you may be able to use OPTION FOUR below to unmounts the ISO via command prompt.

    The .iso was gone after the upgrade. So the drive is empty. It is treated as a USB removable media drive without any media.

    Context Menu/Eject did nothing. The Taskbar 'shuddered'. But the mounted drive remained, empty.

    Edit: Should I remount the .iso and then Eject? Or would that create a new mounted drive?

    Edit2: Disk Management does not offer an Eject option. It is greyed out.
