This is in relation to a 1TB external hard disk drive of WD Elements. This one here - http://www.amazon.in/dp/B008GS8LT0/ref=pe_386221_48200641_TE_item
Each time I plug this in, it gets detected as a local drive, and does not give me an option to safely remove it. I have tried plugging in another USB pen drive at the same time, and windows does give me an option to safely remove that, but not for the WD 1TB HDD.
Have also tried to go properties of "Notification Area Icons" and have checked that "Windows Explorer - Safely Remove Hardware and Eject Media" is set to "Show icons and notifications".
Have also tried to go to Device Manager > Properties of thsi drive and to try to go to the "Policies" tab under there. But there is no such Policies tab for this WD 1TB HDD. (For my two actual internal local drives on this machine, the Policies tab does show).
I am running a Windows 7 Ultimate OS.
Any help would be appreciated.
