I use external USB drives on Windows server 2008 & 2003. Some times I can clock Stop and release an external drive. I know I'm selecting the correcct drive to stop.
Some times, I get the message "the drive cannot be stopped". I've trried resolving this by stopping services like Anti Virus and Backup Exec services but it doesn;t always work. in that case, I need to restart the server and disconnect the drive before it comes back up.
Is there a common solution to this problem?
