I used the external hard disk with Time Machine for the first time. After that when I tried to eject the disk, I got a message saying that it can't be ejected because it is being used by some processes. I downloaded an app called "What's keeping me?" which tells what processes are using some disk or file. I got these results:

What can I do?

  • @klanomath Yes. It's the external disk that I am using with Time Machine – ammar Nov 15 '15 at 11:46
  • What if I shutdown the computer? Will this cause problems? – ammar Nov 15 '15 at 13:25

    It shouldn't cause any problems – klanomath Nov 15 '15 at 13:39
