In USB Safely Remove each device has only been one drive . - so safely removing has only been represented by one drive letter. Now I have a new external USB HDD, with 3 partitions - one primary partition and two logical pa...

External HDD will not release

I use an external USB powered HDD for data storage (on my laptop)
HDD is connected to a mains powered hub > laptop

Occassionally (like now) "USB Safely Remove" warns of impending doom.
No apps nor files open. Trying to close down the laptop.

What am I doing wrong ?

Thank you
