Hi guys,

I have observed the CBFS drives cannot get dismounted if the drive (or any file inside that drive) is in use by another application. Sometimes, I have also noticed the same behavior even if I keep the drive open in windows explorer.

So, is there any way to forcefully dismount the drives.

I am using AddMountingPoint & DeleteMountingPoint APIs for mounting & dismounting the drives respectively.

You can call DeleteStorage(ForceUnmount = true) method. There's no way to delete a mounting point if it's blocked, but keep the storage.

Sincerely yours
