"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.

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.

@georgexsh There's unfortunately not enough information to really establish why macOS isn't fully ejecting the external disk as it should. I left the discussion there in the hope some other users may be able to provide more insight.

 

We haven't had any other reports of this kind of issue from other users, and we are unable to replicate the issue, so this area of the forum may be the best one for you to potentially get fellow users popping in with some ideas of why you might be seeing this specifically on your Mac.

 

Cheers,

Hi, I've had this issue and fixed it by turning off Hazel first. The Finder eject seems to know how to kick Hazel and other programs off it's directories before ejecting. You most likely have a program that is behaving similarly.
