Please help cmdagent.exe is locking my removable drive

Hi There,

I have a eSATA drive that I use for backups, I do two kinds of backup to it, one is a robocopy of my data drive, the other is a disk images of my remaining drives.

Once backup is complete, I should be able to eject the drive from the taskbar, but windows reports that the disk is in use and cannot eject.

I loaded Sysinternals process monitor to find out what processes were using the dive, there was only cmdagent.exe. It is constantly creating files, querying the name, querying the attributes and then closing the file over and over again.

How do I stop this behavior please?

Hey and warm welcome to comodo forums!
