Bug Description

When a removable media is mounted with a file in it in use upon pressing unmount the nautilus used to show a dialog indicating the name of file and the program in which the file is in use and it asked if we want to eject the media anyway.

In pantheon-files, however, nothing is done when you eject the media a file of which is open.(without any notification)

Is there any progress according to this bug?
It doesn't seem that much hard to implement. Almost all file managers I have tried implemented this.

I cannot confirm this using the latest version of Files ( The behaviour is similar to Nautilus, at least for smb://. A warning is given if data is actually being transferred from the mount (e.g. video streaming). No warning is given if a file is just being held open (e.g. viewing a photo).

Please give details of the situation(s) you find in the latest version where the behaviour differs from Nautilus in theis respect.
