Unlike Many, I am a big fan of Safely Removing External Harddisks, USB Drives and anything that comes with a dialogue of Safely Remove Hardware. See this Link if you wonder why I do that.. Anyhow, lately, I have been noticing that It is not working, everytime. Every once in a while,after use when I try to safely remove the disk. Nothing happens. I keep on clicking the button. But the message "Your Device is now safe to remove..blah" is not showing..
My Question is:
- Why isn't it working everytime.
- What ovverides my command to remove that device.
- Is there any way I can close all the handles opened to the files in the usb device and safely remove the device.
- Will Explicitly(using commandline or somethin) closing the handles might cause any data corruption or hardware damage.
