Sandisk Extreme 2Tb: cannot re-enable "quick removal" after enabling "better performance"

On my Sandisk Extreme 2Tb USB drive I tried out the “better performance” setting for testing, but now cannot re-enable “quick removal” - and I often cannot remove the USB drive (eject) until I power down the entire laptop. Any suggestions how to fix this under Win 11?
