I just bought a new backup disk, and I want to check it. It's mounted

Running the following gives an error:

/dev/sdb1 is in use.
e2fsck: Cannot continue, aborting.
What's causing this and how do I fix it? It's not MATE; I tried
rebooting to rescue mode, but that didn't help.

What is the make and model of the USB dock, and is it rated for 12 TB?
It is an Orico, I don't know the model, and I was not aware there was a
"rating" for disk sizes.
Does e2fsck work when the drive is connected to an internal SATA port?
Hasn't been tried, as I was not aware there was a difference between USB
SATA and internal SATA. Also, it would be highly inconvenient. I'd
like to try other possible solutions first.
I use HDD trays and mobile docks for my backup drives:
I will consider this.
Thanks a lot,
