I am also running 10.6.6 and do not have a Time Machine Backup icon on the desktop.
I do have a Time Machine icon in the dock though.
Is TMB the name you have given to the Hard Drive that you use as for Time Machine Backups? If so, why would you be ejecting it?
Unless you are planning on moving it to another machine, it should just sit there and do its thing
The icon ?Time Machine Backup" (further on: ?TMB") on the desktop of my iMac (Mac OS 10.6.6) cannot be ejected. A window tells me:
?The medium ?TMB" is used at the moment by one or more programs an cannot be ejected."
Further: ?To eject the medium immediately, ?click at once."
Having done this the following window tells:
?Do you really want to eject the medium? This can lead to problems with the medium or the information within the medium."
Having pressed the button ?eject immediately" the follwing window shows:
?The medium ?TMB" has been ejected."
And so it happened till the next time I start ?TMB".
It is interesting: having loaded ?TMB" and done nothing, ejecting the medium is properly performed.
What is the reason for this behavior, though no programs are open?
How can this fault be fixed?
