Sudo umount /dev/ssd1 - target is busy

I was following tutorial to make a usb stick linux extension (so i can put timeshift snapshot in it).

but sudo umount /dev/ssd1 result a denied action with reason “target is busy”

That means you have it open somewhere.

Make sure any files you opened from there have been closed, that the file manager isn’t looking at that location and you don’t have any terminals that have cd’d into a directory on the device.

closed everything, except for firefox and vim, have nothing to do with usbstick, it is still “target is busy”
is there any thing that can be use to see what is holding it back ?

$ sudo fdisk -l

$ sudo umount /dev/ssd1
umount: /dev/ssd1: no mount point specified.

Now it says “no mount point specified” - does that means it has being unmounted ?

It should be /dev/sdd1

You have a typo.

Oh. :flushed:
Ok, it is still “target is busy.”

Is sudo umount /dev/sdd1 same as dolphin > right click (on the device) > safely remove (look like eject sign) ?

Tried to “safely remove” the usb stick in dolphin:

There is nothing that is accessing that usb stick.

it is done already.

$sudo umount -l /dev/sdd1

You have it open in dolphin and it is mounted as /run/media/enos-andrew/winboot7

Have you tried ejecting in plasma from the tray icon?
