Win 7 64Bit; FreeAgent Desk 1.5TB & 2.0TB - S/N: 2GEYKL4H & 2GEYWCSG
New Here, just letting you know what I found, I had the same problem with 2 "FreeAgent Desk" Ext drives. I had a Disk Defragmenter program installed, "Smart Defrag" that conflicted with the disks, and whenever I wanted to eject/remove an ext drive using the "Safe To Remove Hardware" icon in the system tray a diaglog was displayed that the disks were being accessed. I had to Exit the defragmenter program from its sys tray icon and then I could get a "safe to remove hardware" notice for removing the ext disks. Hope this helps some.
