Not sure if this is the right place, but here goes......

I keep getting the message 'Disk not ejected properly'. I've drug the disk to the trash thinking that would reset/fix it, but it doesn't. If I leave the iMac on, a pile of these messages will accrue. Or after each restart.

How can I reset/repair this, so as to not keep getting them?

Normally the 'disk not ejected properly' would indicate you have a USB/external HDD that spontaneously disconnects.

If you're running through a hub, try plug directly into the iMac instead. If you have an external HDD, check if it's appropriately powered and that the USB cable isn't loose or anything. Basically just check all peripherals, as the error's somewhere there.

Are you using a Thunderbolt 2 hub by any chance?
