I have to agree with you here. I haven’t used Safely Remove for ever. I simply turned off write caching in Windows 7 anyway, and as you say, in Windows 10 it’s the default.
All the best

I'm not arguing with anything else but this. The Eject/Safely Remove Hardware function is an anachronism in all but the very rarest of circumstances. All the way back to Windows 7 Microsoft changed the default behavior for USB connected devices to stop caching writes, because people were doing "the natural thing" and pulling out jump drives and external USB drives once it appeared all activity had ceased. The problem was if the last activity had been write, the final block of data might not be written unless you ejected.

Explanations exist; they have existed for all time; there is always a well-known solution to every human problem — neat, plausible, and wrong.
