"Eject All" tries to eject Macintosh HD and Recovery VM


Recommended Posts

When using the "Eject All" option to eject USB attached drives Alfred seems to try and eject also the Macintosh HD and recovery partition.


They do not show up in the dropdown of attached USB or Disk Image drives but does prompt me that they can't be ejected as they are open by other processes.

I often see the same behaviour both in Mojave and Catalina it is actually related to TimeMachine. In my case they do show in the eject menu, and "Eject All' gives corresponding errors


Alfred 4.0.6 (1124)


Features -> System -> Blacklist:


Macintosh HD




Did reset there, didn't help


Steps to reproduce: start a TimeMachine backup

I have Time Machine turned off, always had, so it would surprise me if it had anything to do with TM. Plus I never saw the same behaviour before in Mojave. These might be two different cases with the same apparent result.
