Hello,

Great piece of work!

I have USB mass storage device with ext2, all works find until I want to umount it from Windows.

When I try to select the safe remove at PNP tray icon, it complains that the volume is used.

Can you please support removable drives, umount safely?

Thanks!

    System will stop to umount when files of ext2 volume are still referenced. Could you see any Fcb allocations in "Ext2 Statistics" via Ext2Mgr ?

    Normally trying to click "safely remove icon" twice will work. The first request will make all data flushed to disk and un-necessary resources released, then the second will successfully umount it.

    Hello,

    FCB is 0...
    And second time does not work :(

    Also, there is an issue with USB mass storage device with two partitions... Only the first one is available, although I can see the second one.
