Hello All,

I mount storage myfs.st to mounting point H: by applicationA, then applicationA exit. How can I unmount that mounting point after the mounting application exit?

If you left the disk hanging around after the application finished, there's no way to use that disk (and no way to unmount it, obviously).

The approach of leaving the disk active is used when the system is shutting down and your user-mode application is closed before all possible files on the disk are closed.

You should not leave the disk mounted if the application is closed gracefully.

In SolFS Drv. version 2 which we plan to make available in about 2-3 months we will add possibility to pick the orphan disks and re-use or unmount them.

Sincerely yours
Eugene Mayevski
