Is there going to be no fix for this? I properly disconnect my RAID volume, but get this every single time I disconnect from my MacBook.

Is this volume used by time machine? 6.2.1 should help address that.

If not, something in macOS is holding onto the volume.

@softraid-support Yes, it is. I'm already on 6.2.1.

Try this to see two things using terminal, just paste these in. You will need your admin password.

First conform that 6.2.1 is the driver that is loading:

sudo kextstat -b com.softraid.driver.SoftRAID

Second, unmount your volume. Wait a few seconds. then run this to see what is active on the volume:

sudo lsof /Volumes/myDrive

(myDrive is the name of your volume. Change to your volume name. If you have a space in the volume name, temporarily rename it, so it has no spaces, so you can use this format of the command)

And then if I pull the cable from my MBP, I get the error.

It should be (completely) unmounted. I am not sure what is happening, I can ask some engineers and see if there are ideas.

Best suggestion I have is running

lsof /Volumes/volumename when the volume is still mounted (and nothing using it) and see if anything shows open.

@softraid-support Only Time Machine uses that volume.

Lets confirm that 6.2.1 is actually the driver that is loading:

sudo kextstat -b com.softraid.driver.SoftRAID

I think the actual bug is Time Machine is not letting the volume "close" when unmounted.

Maybe there is a terminal command to close the volume, I can dig around.

@softraid-support I think I will disable TM for now and see if I still see the notification.

@softraid-support Seems to be something else because I have disabled TM and it still gives the error when I unmount and disconnect the cable.
