uaehf.device and acceleratorppc.device - error?

I wanted to report in version 4.3.0 (19.12.2019)
this happens:
If I use a .hdf with uaehfdevice (in this case a 30gb .hdf)
And in the same session if I unmount the.hdf from the winUAE panel
and I try to remount the .hdf itself with acceleratorPPC.device, it tells me that the file is in use.
So, I have to exit WinUAE and relaunch the program to select the unit I prefer.
It's normal?
thank you.

Yes, that's normal. Don't think it has anything to do with acceleratorPPC.device though.

Do a reset, quickly press <F12>, add the .HDF back in and then reset again.

It is normal. HDFs don't really support hot swapping.

Toni thanks for the explanation.
I thought it was because of my somewhat anomalous configuration in some parts.
