Post Safely Remove Hardware
I have been informed numerous times by various persons not to unplug my USB stick or portable hard drive from my laptop without first selecting the "safely remove hardware and eject media" button in the pop-up menu on the task bar. Why would such an action be needed? I have unplugged various peripheral devices successfully without 'removing them safely'.

Have you ever copied documents from your computer onto a USB flash drive, only to discover later the copy process was not successful? One probable reason was that the hardware (USB flash drive in this case) was not removed safely. To ensure that files/documents have been copied correctly, the window that was opened for the copy process on your computer must be closed again before unplugging the USB flash drive. The "safely remove hardware and eject media" button does exactly that.

In the event that you see the Safely Remove Hardware symbol Picture of the Safely Remove Hardware symbol in the warning range, at the most distant right of the taskbar, you can utilize this as a sign that your gadgets have completed all operations in advancement and are primed to be evacuated. In the event that you don't see the Safely Remove Hardware symbol, click the Show shrouded symbols catch to show all symbols in the warning zone.

You should also bear in mind that while your flash drive today is pretty reliable, you can damage your USB port is unplug manually.

To safely remove a certain device, click the Safely Remove Hardware icon Picture of the Safely Remove Hardware icon, and then, in the list of devices, click the device that you want to remove. Windows will display a notification telling you it's safe to remove the device.
