Discover which programs prevent disk image ejection
Authored by: lowbatteries on Jun 16, '08 11:30:03AM

I wish OS X had this built in. Like a little "details" link in the "can't eject disk" dialog, that lists "file ZZZ is open by process YYY" - and even give a nice app name for processes that belong to a regular application.

After reading through the comments, I've come upon this as the fastest way to find the files:

lsof +fg +D /Volumes/DODO | grep -v EVO

And if that doesn't list anything, prefix a "sudo " to list from all users. Brilliant tip!
