|This is about the importance of always using the Safely Remove Hardware (SRH) feature of Windows. |
If you dread losing your precious files stored on your USB media (external hard drives, SDC memory cards, jumpers, etc) heed the warnings/cautions given in the two articles HERE and HERE!
If you don't, be aware that once your USB media turned RAW, the chances of reviving your precious files free of corrupt are next to none. In my many years of computing, I never have lost one USB media because I always use the SRH feature.
I hope this post will save you from big disappointment one of these days.
