No gls,

I have the same issue, but only with this new version 1.3.0. In 1.2 it goes well!

Regardless on the type of USB pendisk I use, it always deny to remove it.

Re: External hard drive and ExpressCache

Caching looks fine; are you sure this did not happen with 1.2.1? Also if you exit the ExpressCache gui app and kill the expresscache.exe service in the task manager does itstill state you cannot eject the pen drive?

 

Thanks!

If I kill expresscache.exe I'm able to extract the pendrive safely. Till then it flashes again and again like there were activities, even if I have no files open.

If you cannot solve the problem, I will uninstall 1.3 and reinstall 1.2.1: it had not this problem.

No solutions?

I don't think it's a minor problem!

Re: External hard drive and ExpressCache

Just an update. I stopped ExpressCache in Task manager for several weeks, and all of my external hard drives worked correctly and I could eject them. A few days ago I turned ExpressCache back on, and again ExpresCache is constantly accessing the external drives, I cannot eject them. Although everything seems to work ok, the constant drive activity is a concern.

 

Some have said that ExpressCache does not defrag or cache USB drives. This may be true, but it is certainly doing something with the drives.

 

Obviously I am not the only person with this problem. It is unfortunate that someone from SanDisk cannot shed some light on this problem.

Re: External hard drive and ExpressCache

Thanks, yea i just had two different external drives that wouldn't eject for no obvious reason so I guess it was that.
