how to eject external drives (Win10) if no 'Eject' option?
« on: November 08, 2017, 10:16:57 AM »

After plugging a couple of Seagate Backup Plus external drives in Windows 10 system, there's no option to Eject them.





Aside from shutting down the system, are there other official ways of doing it?

A. close all explorers, apps that utilize the external HD.

  or
B. Device Manager

never used the eject function for my flash drives and external hdd's since win7 :D

i "think" it's safe as long as it's configured for fast removal.. and not for performance
