I have Samsung Magician v8.0.0 installed for managing my new
Samsung 980 Pro 1TB and 2TB NVMe SSDs
and its Windows service exe [SamsungMagicianSVC.exe] is causing my USB storage devices to fail to eject now... and Windows Task Manager was also causing it to happen but I closed that app to see if it was still a problem and found out that SamsungMagicianSVC.exe is causing it to happen too...
PLEASE FIX it Samsung.

the only Samsung products I own outside of my Galaxy S21+/S10+ smartphones.. and my NVMe SSDs are a USB drive I listed the Amazon product pages above.
Samsung 980 Pro a 1TB and 2TB NVMe SSDs
as for USB drives like the WD, no need to unmount to remove, Flash Drive do need to be unmounted tho
ok, I use it to keep track of my TB written info.. and to clone drives if I need a replacement drive..
the WD USB HDD is a rotating platter HDD need to be stopped to park the read/write head.
