The Safely Remove Hardware Icon has been on my Task Bar for a while now. When I double click on it I get this window:
That's my Hard Drive!! Why is my HD showing up in Safely Remove Hardware?!
So I click on Properties and I get this:
Seems to be working fine.
I click on the Driver Tab and click on Driver Details and get this:
Everything seems to be working fine. So what's up? Why is my HD listed as being safe to remove?
I was reading these threads regarding USB/Safely Remove Hardware questions:Why Do I Need To Press "Safely Remove Hardware" When Removing a USB?Safely Remove Hardware Icon-fix Doesn't Work
And I'm wondering if I did something bad. I do use USB Ports a lot. I use Thumb Drives and Digital Camera Plug-in. My Thumb Drives have an "Eject" option (Cruzer Thumb Drive) but I always just pulled out the plug for my Digital Camera...after I turned it off.
Does this have something to do with my problem?
