To safely remove the media, close all open files on the drive:

  1. Save any open files from the application using the files on the removable media device.
  2. If you are still getting the warning, close all open applications.

If you had a system crash since powering on, Windows may think a file is in use, when it no longer is. A reboot should clear the issue, and it is usually safe to remove the media, even without a reboot.
