How to safely dismount and turn off the Drive with the computer running
1. Locate the System Tray. The System Tray includes the time display in the bottom right, and icons to the left of the time. One of the icons will be an icon with a green, diagonal arrow on it.
2. Left-click on this icon. On Windows 98SE*Grinler a rectangle will appear with the name of the Drive followed by the drive letter.On Windows 2000/XP you will receive the alert message “Safely Remove…” or “Stop…” followed by the drive letter for the device.
3. Left-click on the appropriate device (with the drive letter matching the one used by the External Hard Drive). After a few seconds, Windows will give you a message that it is safe to remove the device.
4. Click OK. The Drive will dismount and you can then safely turn if off. You may then unplug the power cord and USB 2.0 cable if you want to disconnect the drive.
