"Eject" command dont stop USB external disk as finder do

Recommended Posts

When using "Eject" function in system finder, my external disk will stop spinning and LED turn off, but using "Eject" command in Alfred, the drive will keep spinning and LED won't turn off.

Is this a bug?

@georgexsh Welcome to the forum. :) 

 

If you launch Console.app and try to eject your external drive, do you see an error message? It may indicate why macOS is not allowing the disk to be fully ejected.

 

Cheers,
Vero

Thanks for your reply. Above are some logs I found, I guess "错误" == "Error". By saying "not fully ejected", I mean not as Finder do to shut down power completely, the disk is successfully unmounted with Alfred in some sorts.

Besides, I use the USB drive in question as TimeMachine.

@Vero update, I could confirm that another external HDD will be powered off with alfred's eject command, just like finder does, the difference is, this HDD is not for Time Machine.
