Swapping Harddive Issue - Drive is in USE

Apr 1, 2009
we have an internal hard drive in a removeable tray as a form of backup running on win 2008 64 bit.

Each day we where using a free utility to hotswap the drive which was working without any problems. but now for some reason now even with no other programs running on the server something is accessing the backup drive and we cant see it hotswap the drive.

it keeps saying the drive is in use. We thought it was the backup software so temporarily have removed that and its made no difference.

Has anyone else had this problem.

One thing to note this only seems to happen overnight as if we reboot the server and then hotswap it works without any problems but we dont wanna have to keep rebooting the server every morning just to change drives.
