Easier way to unplug external USB drives

Most of the times when you try to remove your external USB drives using the safely remove hardware icon from the desktop this error pops up:

problem-ejecting-usb-storage

So the much easier way to unplug external USB drives is to use the free utility called unlocker and just go to my computer > right click on drive > and choose unlocker .

problem-ejecting-usb-storage-2

That's it no more annoying messages and you are safely removing your drive because none of the files are accessing it.
