Is anyone else having this issue? After I exit LR, I can't safely eject my hard drive unless I completely shut down my laptop. It's so frustrating that I hesitate to launch LR when I know I am working on other things that I don't want to shut down. Come on, Adobe, don't make me go back to my stand alone LR 5.

Hi debw45459223,

We're sorry that you're facing problems ejecting your external hard drive safely after you close Lightroom. Could you please let us know the exact version of Lightroom you're using?

Does Lightroom still run in the background after you close it? (check in the Activity monitor or Task manager to check this)

Thanks,

Akash

I think this happens on all/other Adobe products too, notably Photoshop but probably Bridge, Premiere, After Effects and InDesign as well. These are the apps I'm using, and every time I work on Adobe software with files from an external hard drive, I can't eject the drive safely.

I noticed similar problems when controlling a screen from a server and saving images/videos directly to the server from my laptop. The controller on the server would freeze, and the whole server would need to be rebooted.

Everytime there has been a link of some sort between an Adobe software on my computer and an external server/drive (everytime I've saved an Adobe file to an external server/drive), there have been problems. Either I've had to reboot the server, force eject the drive, or reboot the computer. 

 

Thanks for all the help.

I have the same problem with Illustrator, Photoshop even Acrobat DC.

 

The Fix (ish):
If you go into task manager and shut down all of the background Adobe apps including the creative cloud apps (e.g. CCXProcess, etc.), you will be able to eject your external hard drive.

 

This will keep you from having to shut down you computer. Still, I am paying adobe way too much money to have this irritating problem. This needs to be fixed for real.
