Ejecting an external drive

External Storage devices should be ejected via software before physically disconnecting them from computers. This prevents file and directory corruption. It is the reason why Microsoft Windows® and macOS provide eject functions.

As a convenience, an eject function is also provided in EdgeRover™.

  1. In the main menu click on Sources. The content view will show your sources.
  2. Locate the External Storage device you want to eject.
  3. Under the source click on . A menu will appear.
  4. Click on Eject.

A confirmation will be displayed letting you know that the drive was ejected.

If the device is being used by another application, the operating system may not allow it to be ejected.

If the device is currently being cataloged by EdgeRover, you will be given the choice to continue cataloging the device or continue with the eject command. If you eject the device, cataloging will resume automatically the next time it is plugged in.

Why can't ArmorLock devices be ejected using EdgeRover?
