Yes, XpUser - that's the very same article. Also seem to recall you and/or others assisting on another post a while back where someone had run into real problems when simply switching off a USB drive without first invoking Safely Remove Hardware.
As a footnote may I say that despite being in my senior years now, I learn more every day from the superb contributions and advice offered on this site. A real life and sanity saver at times - and damned interesting as well. Thanks.
