It does, at least if the drivers are written as they should.
You have to right-click on the drive and choose "eject drive" from the
context menu. Then windows will send a notification to ask all apps to
release their handles. The cache will honor that notification and shut
down all handles of that drive.
You may have to do it twice, because windows doesn't wait - if the cache
needs a second or two to really safely close the handle, windows will
just not wait but assume the app can't close the handle and error out.
The second time you try, the cache will already have closed the handle
and windows doesn't have to wait, so it will succeed.

It's not a file handle.
