Server 2008 R2 Backup to External HDD's

Last Modified: 2012-05-12
I am using Server 2008 R2's backup feature. I have two external hard drives that I setup to rotate for offsite storing. The first backup ran last night and was successfull. The problem I am having is it does not want to safely remove the external so that I can rotate the drives. It said the drive is in use although the backup is completed. I don't just want to pull the drive out.
