Finding open files

Finding open files

I'm using Windows Vista with an external (USB) hard drive. Sometimes I need to disconnect the hard drive, but when I try to disconnect USB devices, Windows tells me that an application is using the files on that drive. As far as I know, I have closed anything accessing the hard drive.
