Unloading the Cypherix Drive

Return to Introduction  Previous  Next

To unload the Cypherix drive

 

1.   Make sure that no application is using files on the Cypherix drive. If you have made any changes to the files, be sure to save those files and close them all.

 

2.   Click on the Unload button.

3.   Normally, Cypherix unloads the loaded volume file on clicking "Unload". If any application has files open, the unload operation cannot proceed. In this case, Cypherix displays the following error message and cannot unload the drive.

Have you by any chance installed some programs in the Cypherix volume? Most programs like Office suites, etc, have processes running in the background even though the application is not actually running (for eg. MS Office Startup). These programs may also be using some files on Cypherix volume. To unload the Cypherix drive these processes have to be closed/disabled.

 

4.   While unloading, Cypherix automatically closes any Explorer windows that you may have opened by the "View in Explorer" button. But if it cannot close them for some reason, you may do so yourself.

 

5.   Alternatively, you may Unload the volume using the Unload button provided in the "List Cypherix Drives" option.
