Take a look at this website to explain why the delay in ejecting a drive. Scroll down to "Why would you need to eject a drive?"Has anyone discovered anything new about this issue or tried the "Clean My Drive" workaround? I prefer not to use 3rd-party software when I can avoid it. This is a real annoyance for me as I back up a few computers and transfer Logic X files back and forth almost daily with a USB 3 stick and I'm sometimes waiting 30-90 seconds for Apple to be done with the drive before I can eject it. If I'm booted into Snow Leopard 10.6.8, any type of external drive ejects instantaneously. This issue seems to have nothing to do with:
- Spotlight- How it's ejected (i.e. Finder window, right-click, drag to Trash)Any current thoughts, solutions, or workarounds for this silly problem? Anyone know what changed in the Mac OS since Snow Leopard that causes this?
