I’ve got some samba drives that are being accessed by multiple users daily. I already have code to recognize shared drives (from a SQL table) and mount them in a special directory where all users can access them.
I want to know, if I remove a drive from my SQL table (effectively taking it offline) how, or even is, there a way to unmount a busy device? So far I’ve found that any form of
umount does not work.
Ignoring the possibility of destroying data – is it possible to unmount a device that is currently being read?
