Drive can't/won't eject

I have a WD 1TB drive with three partitions, one of which is where SD backs up to.

I can't eject the drive, it says it is in use.

Even if I restart the imac.

So, the system thinks I am using something in the back up files.

Suggestions / Comments / further information....

Thanks

Nope.

- there are 4 users
- iphotos and music are on one partitiion of the drive
- movies are on the second and back ups are on the third partition.

I see the backups are running.

I can send a log if you'd like.

I don't think a log is going to tell us anything: we're no longer running when you csn't eject.

Do you have any problemd running programs if you shut down, eject/unplug the drive & then run without it attached?

.... thanks for the quick reply, appreciate it.

I will dismount (or attempt to) today. Failing that - I will shut the machine down and start up as you suggested.

I will let you know the results later today, just wanted to touch base.
