Sometimes a hard drive will not "unmount" because there are applications being run from it.

I have copies of Apps on the external HD.
I have found occasionally that when opening a document on the main HD that the computer will use the Application not in the main Applications Folder, BUT it will use the Application that resides on the external HD.
OK, the computer should not do that. BUT it occasionally does.
Then when I want to unmount the external HD, I cannot.
BUT I don't know which Apps have started up from the ext HD.
Of course I could quit ALL my apps. But I usually don't want to. I just want to find which Apps have started up from the Ext HD.

Is there a way to find out what applications are running from the ext HD?
QUOTE Thanks
