Hi, Have You checked the Safely remove hardware applet that sits in the notifications area. It is the same one that is used for stopping a USB drive before unplugging it. If the Bios shows the eSATA as removable it should show there, Based on one of My Windows 7 computers where I needed that option.

 

Good Luck

Roger
