The disk “Owner” wasn’t ejected because one or more programs may be using it.?

I am using safari on a mac book air with "mac OS Catalina Version 10.15.1" and have searched the internet and have found nothing that is able to help me out with this. If anyone can offer me any advice that might help, I would really appreciate it as I have lots of important files and documents on my external SEAGATE hard drive…

    Shut down. Disconnect the external hard drive. Start the computer. Connect the external hard drive to see if everything is there. Close all opened programs including Finder before you disconnect the external drive. If this doesn't work, there's a background program accessing the drive. Perhaps an autobackup utility?
