Re: Want Safe Ejection of a Cruzer Edge 8GB

Safely Remove ensures any writes sitting in a Windows buffer gets written to the drive.  These writes could be very small, like an update to a file directory entry, but could be very critical to the data on the drive being usable.  If Windows says the drive is not removable means something has a file or folder open on the drive.  Be sure everything using the drive is closed.  If unable to determine what is using the drive shutting down Windows works.  And I don't mean turning the system off, I mean shutting it down.

Important files = Backed up files
