Yes, I get a process number, then by typing "kill -9 [process number]" I can unmount the volume. I don't know why those processes keep going but figured it might be a disk problem on the external HDD. Usually it's a matter of image files that I've viewed with Preview.

Thanks for the hint of the program, but since I'm doing the same via Terminal anyway it doesn't really matter *just thought if the same fsck -y command could be used for external disks as well, while at it *but I believe I might all the same use the regular Disk Utility in OSX. Hadn't thought about that!
