USB EHD safe ejection snafus

July 27, 2009 at 00:39:50
Specs: Windows Vista & XPH, 2.0 Ghz with 2Gb RAM
What else causes balking at safe ejections
of USB EHD's even though they're set for quick
disconnects, indexing and no sharing, but when I
then delete MRU list entries, the problem
w/ejection disappears?

Duh, I guess nobody read the forum anymore.

I think you are Wrong. People do read posts. It's just that no one (me included) know exactly what you are talking about and you kept posting new threads related to USB & EUHD.

I assume you mean External USB Hard drives.

Your post is dated July 27 but just appeared in my Hardware forum. Today is Aug. 2.

Steve, to try and answer your question I will ask one. What do you consider an excessive time frame for you to get the Safely remove message?

If you have sent data to the drive and it has not finished writing that data Windows will not show you the safely remove message.

IMO your settings are counterproductive. Write caching speeds up the drive performance as does indexing.

Depending on the file sizes being written to the drive that could make the difference.

One other thing to note. If you are connected to an older USB port, or to most hubs you are running at USB 1.1. I assume you know what affect that can have on performance with large files.

Seems the only expertise here is my workaround to Windows
bogus 'unsafe' removal prompt (clear the MRU list).
