    Hi

    I am using Windows 8.1 Update with its Windows ADK.

    I noticed that if I run the command

    Code:
    Dism /Unmount-Image /MountDir:"<Mount_Directory_Path>" /discard
    
    while the Files Explorer is opened on any directory, this command displays an error and it can not unmount the volume image. Instead, if I close the Files Explorer, the above command unmounts the image correctly. How come?

    Thanks

    Bye

    Hi

    By Unmounting you have to close the Files Explorer
    because when you open the mount folder in the files explorer and you unmount
    you are "Using" the Mount directory so he can't unmount

    so close the file explorer and then unmount

    Fully agreed but you also have to make sure none of the mounted file is opened if it is than it will also give an error while unmounting

    I used to have weird issues committing images until I discovered it only happened while I had File Explorer open.
    These days I just close it automatically while working with builds from the ADK command prompt...

    My problem happens even when Files Explorer is opened on another directory other than the mounting. How come?

    Thanks

    Hi

    I open normally Files Explorer and I observe any directory different from that of mounting and then I open the the environment window of the Windows ADK and I mount a volume image, with the command

    Code:
    Dism /Mount-Image /MountDir:"<Mount_Directory_Path>"
    
    and then, I unmount it with the command

    Code:
    Dism /Unmount-Image /MountDir:"<Mount_Directory_Path>" /discard
    
    I get the 0xc1420117 error. If, however, I close Explorer Files before dismounting it, the dismounting command works correctly. How come?

    Thanks

    Bye
