    I have a maxtor external hdd 80 gigs.

    The problem is i cant remove from the safely remove hardware program.

    it says that: the hdd is busy, try removing it later.

    i even tried to close all the programs and services that is running, (even explorer). But still, i cant remove it safely.

    are there any other ways of removing it. Because if i remove it physically, it might get corrupted....
