Default External drives blocking

If I plug some external drive when running FlashFXP it is blocked that I can`t eject it without using Unlocker utility.

Are you closing FlashFXP before trying to eject the external drive?

If FlashFXP is open then it should still allow you to eject the drive provided you're not currently viewing a folder that is located on the drive.

If FlashFXP is closed and the problem still occurs perhaps an instance of FlashFXP didn't properly shut down and it may need to be terminated via the task manager?

Describing the steps:
1. Launch FlashFXP
2. plug in external HDD (important)
3. do not perform any actions
4. trying to eject hdd from Safe devicw remove menu
5. get notification that hdd is in use
If I close FlashFXP, hdd ejects normally

I`ve been tested flash drive and it`s ok, problem appears only with external hdd

I have managed to reproduce the issue using a removable hard drive, you are right that a usb flash drive does not cause the same issue.

FlashFXP listens for device change messages and when a DBT_DEVICEREMOVEPENDING message is received FlashFXP will turn off the drive change monitor so that the device can be safely removed.

This notification message is not being triggered for removable hard drives.

I am going to change the way I monitor for folder changes in the navigation tree. Instead of monitoring all the drives, I am changing it to only monitor the drive of the selected folder, this will eliminate the problem. Unless of course you are browsing the drive that is trying to be removed.
