External backup disk drive not unmounting… suspect a 1P process

Either as a result of the upgrade to macOS 13.3 (and/)or a recent 1P upgrade, one of my external drives now refuses to unmount - apparently, it seems, because of a 1Password process (PluginLibraryService 1126 1Password Helper).

I do have the volume in question (Mercury Elite Pro) in Spotlight's Privacy list.

Is this a known issue; or am I doing something wrong, please? Thanks in advance…

1Password Version: 8.10.3 81003012 on PRODUCTION channel
Extension Version: n/a
OS Version: 13.3
Browser:_ n/a


  • Hey @Mark Sealey

    Off-hand that might seem to indicate that 1Password is running off of that drive. I would not expect it to do that. I'd need a diagnostics report to confirm that. Would you be able to send one to us? Here's how.

    1. Open 1Password.
    2. Press command and comma. The 1Password preferences will open.
    3. Tap Advanced.
    4. Click Send Diagnostics.
    5. Click Reveal to locate the report in your downloads folder.

    Attach the diagnostics to an email message addressed to [email protected].

    I see that one of my colleagues has sent you a reply. Since we have a communications channel open via email I'm closing this thread.
