Safely Remove Hardware

€dstowe you mentioned this in another thread, which I don't want to hijack.

I'm constantly plugging in/removing USB devices but I've never seen "Safely Remove Hardware" in the sys tray.

I've also seen this mentioned in another thread (which I can't find now) - how can I activate it?

It only comes up as an option if it is needed. I have a plug in hard drive on which I store Acronis backups, There is a little icon in the bottom right hand corner of the screen when the drive is switched on. I click on this and select to close down the drive. It then tells me when it is safe to do so. DON'T worry about it. If it isn't there. it isn't needed.
