Yep, one of the numerous things I've already done. Thanks for the hint though
It says "ressource busy", no matter how long you leave the HD. I can only see the root element, but none of the 2 partitions here...
As I said, it's like the system knew that there were 2 partitions, it tries to get info from them, and gets stuck for some reasons.
That's why I wanted to force an unmount command, so that I can try it from my session...
Any other idea (than force unmount) are welcome too btw : )
the command you tried is the correct command to force a disk unmount. it didn't work because something is wrong with the drive and I'm not sure if anything esle will help. you can try this one
diskutil unmount force /volumes/"disk name"
you might also try unmounting by device number instead of the volume name.
to see the device numbers for all your volumes. a device number will look something like this disk2s2. then run
diskutil unmount force devicenumber
But I really don't know if this will work any better than what you tried.
