Gnome disks (gnome-disk-utility) unresponsive

Greetings!

I was trying to edit the mount options of an external drive and Gnome disks froze and now it won’t quit.

When I try to quit from the window, journalctl just says:

gnome-shell[1104]: Window manager warning: Ping serial 29322784 was reused for window 0x3e00007, previous use was for window 0x3e08808.

Is it safe to kill the process or should I try something else?

EDIT:
I should add that the gui froze before I made any changes and I’ve already unmounted and removed the external drive. So could just end the gnome-disks process from system monitor?

Yeah, I ended the process and no issue came up. This topic can be closed now (I apologize for my noobness, can’t be too careful).
