If I kill AxCrypt in the task manager, the drive unlocks and I can eject it. When the drive is locked after encrypting a file, Process Explorer (a free download utility) shows F:\ (the USB drive) in use by AxCrypt. The locking doesn’t always happen. A couple of times I decrypted a file and then could eject the drive, but other times I couldn’t. I haven’t figured out how to do one or the other reproducibly. Encrypting a file has always locked it so far. (This was all on the Windows 8 machine.)
