Force disk to unmount

If you ever get a disk or disk image that will not unmount, you can force it with a Terminal command. Run Terminal and use “df” to list the drives. Find the one you want to unmount, such as /dev/disk3s2. Then use “diskutil unmountDisk force /dev/disk3s2” to force it to unmount.
