How Do I Safely Remove Hardware


First off, some of those icons will never be removed, as they are necessary to be there for verification purposes. Safely Remove Hardware is one of them. Any time you plug in a device such as a flash card or external hard drive, devices that read and write data, they show up in this block. Since Windows does delayed writes to save time,l if you simply unplug these devices without letting Windows close out the write cache may cause corrupted files. Right clicking on the Safely Remove Hardware icon will cause a listing of attached devices to be displayed. Clicking on the device you want to remove (unplug) will tell Windows to close out the file cache and dismount the device. Windows will do this and them notify you that the device is safe to remove.

Now, regarding all those other icons that appear,such as OneDrive, volume control, and others, if you don't want them showing up in the taskbar, you can right click on the "^" caret symbol that expands the taskbar, then choose SETTINGS. This will bring up the taskbar settings menu. Scroll down the page to where is says "Select which icons appear on the taskbar" and select that. You will see a long list of possible taskbar icons. Turn off the ones you don't want to see display on the taskbar. This does not remove them from the system, but they will no longer display on the taskbar,

A flash drive is basically an USB Hard drive. It is a very handy device once you have figured out to use it.

Flash drives come in different internal storage sizes, so it is best you buy one that suits your needs. What makes it even better, is the fact that it is a plug-n-play device, which means that you will not have to install any drivers.

If you do not know what the storage capacity of your flash drive is, follow these steps to determine the storage size.

Plug the flash drive into your Desktop/Notebook USB port.

6aac1fd.jpeg 626f603.jpg 244a6f8.jpg

  1. Double click on the My Computer icon on your desktop.
  2. Now you should see your flash drive listed as a hard drive.
  3. Right click on your flash drive.
  4. Choose the properties option.
  5. Go to the general tab.
Now you should be able to see clearly how much of the storage is used, and how much free space you still have left.

To use the flash drive as a storage device:

  1. Almost all flash drives are Plug and play, thus plug the flash drive into the USB port, wait for your computer to detect the flash drive.
  2. Once detected, open the drive by double clicking on it's icon in My computer.
  3. Now you just need to copy the files and paste it on the flash drive.
  4. Copy the file by right clicking on it, choose the copy option.
  5. Go to the flash drive and right click, choose the paste option.
  6. When you are done. remember to go to the "Safely Remove Hardware" icon situated at the bottom of the Window's tray. Click "Eject" or the "Remove the Hardware Safely" option when finished.
Remember, if the files you want to copy is larger than the internal storage capacity of the flash drive, the file will not copy.

Hope this can give you a rough idea how to use a flash drive!!

Kind regards

Problem with ASUS P5QC Motherboard, cannot detect any usb device (hard discs). The lights on the devices show that there is power, but Windows 7 cannot 'see' them. Keyboard, mouse and usb stic


If same usb port work with other devices then suggest to check the disk management first then device manager. If it is not listed in disk management or you are not able to access it then open device manger and check under disk drives. If it is not listed in device manger then I suggest to test the external harddisk on another PC. If that also fails then you either have a bad hard disk.

Hi.. the safely remove icon doesn't appear..and i cant safely remove my hardware even if i eject it still it appears on my explorer..if the driver id missing then why it can run on my computer and able to...


The safely remove icon just tells you when no activity is occuring to the flash drive or portable HD so that you don't corrupt data while its writing to the drive. It still shows up in the explorer because it is still connected. If you clicked Eject and it says it's safe to remove then remove it. It might even be safe to remove if you're sure the device is not being used at all.

My External Hard Drive isn't working anymore, to say the just of it. It's on, lights on(not flashing, it flashes when it's being written to or accessed), usually has a regular clicking noise from it...


When a hard drive makes a clicking noise, this indicates the hard drive has failed and if the BIOS and the Computer Management does not detect it, then this confirm a hard disk failure.
To get the computer operating again, replace the hard disk, then install Windows on the hard disk using the Windows installation CD and the Windows product installation code that is on the label on the computer then install the device drivers and your programs.

Pen drive not showing in my explorer.


Its a common problem with the pendrive, in windows. some time it doesnot detect or not showing clearly that device. you have to check your pendrive manufacturer and driver details. and also check it out driver signing.

Do you have mapped network drives on your computer? If you have this may cause your problem. When you insert the PEN Drive into USB and the "safely remove hardware" icon appers try to right-click on it and choose "eject" or "remove" (don't remember :), then pull the PEN DRIVE from the USB and connect it again. Go to Windows Explorer and try to open all your mapped drives, then the content of your PEN DRIVE must be loaded into your Windows Explorer. This is happened sometimes, because PEN DRIVE try to assign the first free drive letter after your phisical drive letters, and if you have a mapped drive letter, the PEN DRIVE assign one of them.
