Discover which programs prevent disk image ejection
Authored by: mmnw on Jun 16, '08 08:45:53AM
That could certainly be. I had this problem a while ago with an external disk shared via SMB and AFP. Both protocols tended to block ejecting the disk. The worst was with windows clients on the network, because there is no obvious way of telling windows to close an open connection.
Also you should note the comment above, about using sudo lsof, because it could be, that file sharing uses a different user account to access the files (i.e. guest account), depending on your configuration.
