Error Message:

Cannot lock the drive. The volume is still in use.


The file system utility requires exclusive use of a volume (for example, to format it). However, the utility cannot lock the volume for your exclusive use right now. Somebody else may be using it.

User Action:

Shut down other applications and console windows that are using the drive, and try again.
