When you try to unplug your USB drive, you may have a chance of getting “The device ‘Generic volume’ cannot be stopped right now. Try  stopping the device again later” warning. This warning can be irritating.

Why am I getting this warning or error?

You are getting this error because the programs you open from your USB drive are still running in the background or Antivirus in your computer is still monitoring your USB drive.
