Now this can take a very long time, so I have to manually shut the computer down, unplug the external drive and all is well.
I use that drive a lot to store large files so it's annoying but my fault for often forgetting to unplug the thing before a restart.
If there's a fix for this, I'd just as soon be relieved of the problem.
Advise most welcome, and thank you.
