Hi, I bought a WD Elements external hard drive for my Windows 7 PC; then after the backup was completed I clicked on the safely remove hardware icon, but after about 30 seconds I got a message saying windows cant stop my WD Elements 1078 USB device because a program is still using it. I have no idea what program may still be using it or what is wrong. Does anyone know what is wrong and how to resolve this?

He's seen a 1TB hard drive for as cheap as 7-9 dollars?! WHERE?? On Amazon it's from 60 bucks and up. And why did he bother with a video tutorial, when we're staring at his desktop? It would've made a better blog...maybe.

Clone/Copy EVERYTHING including Windows Backup data with External 5 months ago   16:09

Macrium reflect download:
Take a backup of your personal files and folders before you perform any sort of procedure in this video.. Hard drive cloning is a complicated process and if cloning fails you could loose all your data.
Make sure you follow every instruction STEP BY STEP missing any instruction can cause cloning to fail

Don't make dumb comments like "why the fuck you need 3 drives" "you don't need a external drive to do this" If you do so I will moderate, also many people don't own a desktop or even if they do many are not power users like us so keep that in mind thanks. Don't like it? go watch thousands of other drive cloning tutorials on YouTube.

Disclaimer: I have been cloning drives without any problem for the past few years without any issues with this exact same method, if in case if it fails its likely that you didn't follow step by step instructions or might be a case of bad cables or in very rare case hardware incompatibility. I wont be held responsible for the loss of your data since I have already asked you take a BACKUP of your personal files.
