I have this problem with Windows 7 from time to time, and I finally want to find out the correct solution. Sometimes when Im done using a USB hard drive, and I've closed all applications saving to it (or copying from it), I can't eject the drive. I get an error message: "Windows can't stop your 'Generic volume' because a program is still using it. Close any programs that might still be using the device, and then try again later." When I look up the drive using fsutil...Code:>fsutil fsinfo drive E: E: - Fixed DriveDoes anyone know why this happens? Or more importantly, does anyone know how to change the drive type back to removable, when it does happen?
