Or download the Remove drive utility.
In the zipfile, you will find a version for windows 32 or 64.
Put the removedrive.exe in c:\windows.
Each time you want to safely remove a drive, you go to run and type:
removedrive h:
or witch letter your usb drive does have.

You can download it from:
http://www.uwe-sieber.de/files/removedrive.zip
Works in windows xp, vista or win7.

This is extremely helpful.

I wonder if this works for Windows XP too?

Hi, Tom. If you are using Windows 7, the following may help:


The "Safely Remove Hardware" icon can sometimes disappear from the
notification area. Even though there are devices installed that require
it - it's nowhere to be found.

When this happens, you may perform the following steps:

1. Open the Run command by pressing the Windows logo key +R.

2. Enter the following command and hit Enter:

RunDll32.exe shell32.dll,Control_RunDLL hotplug.dll

This will bring up the "Safely Remove Hardware" dialog box:

From this dialog box you can click on the device you want to remove, and
press Stop. Once Windows is done with it, you can then remove the device.

If it happens often enough, you can create a desktop shortcut for the
"safely remove hardware" command.

Right click on your desktop, click New, and then click Shortcut.

In the resulting dialog box enter the following command:

RunDll32.exe shell32.dll,Control_RunDLL hotplug.dll



Click Next and change the shortcut name to Safely Remove
Hardware.

Click Finish.

Hi, all.

How do I safely remove USB devices so as to not risk coruption of SD
cards and thumb drives?

I do an Insert F11, but even when an SD card or thumb drive are present,
they do not show up on the list of system tray icons. therefore, I
don't know how to safely remove them.

Thanks!

tom Behler from Michigan
