View Full Version : [ubuntu] 10.04 64-bit Unmount NTFS Partition Issue

May 14th, 2010, 12:56 AM
I run dual boot Win/Ubuntu environment. I recently updated my Karmic to 10.04 64-bit.

What I started noticing is that some time when I try to unmount my NTFS partition I get a message that says:

"It is now safe to remove your D Drive"


"D Drive" is the label of my NTFS partition and I believe this message makes no sense. I never got this message in 9.10. Mostly I got the message comes when I initially log in to my laptop. After the initial mount and unmount. I can mount and unmount it again and I never get the message. If I don't use my laptop for awhile, the message shows again if I try to mount and unmount it.

Anybody else seen this message and what would be the best way to debug? Again this is my internal disk and no external disks are attached.

I am attaching a screenshot.

Why Ubuntu thinks that my internal drive is external???
