I keep receiving the message that my external hard drives can not be ejected because one or more programs may be using it. The only option is to do a force eject or I reboot the iMac and unplug it while it reboots or after it reboots I can safely eject it. This keeps happening with different hard drives and it just happened when copying files from one drive to another, and the drive was not using any programs. 1. is it bad for the drive to not safely eject it and just reboot the mac instead? 2. is there some way to safely eject it when I receive this message? I quit every single program and even re launch finder and check the force quit menu and none of that seems to help. Thanks!
