Re: Safe To Remove Hardware Message

If it is identified as a USB or removeable drive in File Explorer, then it can be ejected via the Context menu. If it is identified as a local drive in File Explorer, then it must be removed via the Safely Remove Hardware and Media feature in the system tray.

You can't eject hard drives and I have many flash drives that can't be ejected either.  One of the terms used is incorrect.  but the procedure described is for using safely remove hardware so the procedure is correct.

Hi all,

External hard drives can't be ejected like cards or USB drives.

Tell me, is Widows 10 better than the Nuptual version?   Wouldn't
Widows be more apt to give the blue screen of death?  <smiling>  Yes, I
know I'm bad, very bad!
