Automatically Close All Running Programs and Safely Eject USB Drive

15 May 2009 By Rakshit


Have you ever encountered a scenario when you were not able to safely eject your usb drive because some hidden programs were already running? There is built in safely remove hardware option in windows but there are times when we get an error like “Cannot remove USB Drive” and at that time we left with no other option but to directly remove the USB drive. This increases the risk of data corruption and possible damage of your flash drive.

EjectUSB is a freeware utility that can automatically close all running programs and can safely eject your USB drives. Not only this but it has got some advanced features as well like flushing the file cache, closing Explorer windows and removing registry entries and Recent Document shortcuts. EjectUSB does not have any user interface but still it’s very easy to use. All you need to do is to extract the zip file to your USB flash drive and then simply run EjectUSB.exe to eject the drive.

If you want to configure the application as per your liking, settings.bat file helps you to do that. Only glitch that I have found in this application is that your antivirus may detect it as malicious software like Trojan but believe in actual it’s not. The reason why you may get this notification is that EjectUSB is an AutoIt3 script. Don’t forget to download it from official website only and you can use it without any worries. The file size is just 258 KB in size.

Download it from HERE.
