Microsoft removes safe removal of USB drives as the default option

Windows 10 will soon let you pull out USB sticks at any time With Windows 10 1809, Microsoft drops safe removal of USB drives as the default option

Microsoft is well aware that people have no time to remove USB safely.

Meanwhile, Better performance is just that - this policy caches write operations, making data transfers faster, but users must perform the Safely Remove Hardware process to protect the integrity of the data within the drive.

As Betanews reports, Microsoft offers two policies regarding external storage media: Quick Removal and Better Performance. Although inclined users could easily switch to quick removal if they chose to, many kept the default option which houses a small risk of losing data if USB devices are removed without utilising the proper ejection method. Beginning in Windows 10 version 1809, the default policy is Quick removal. In the Policies tab, select Better performance in the Removal policy options.

In what can be considered as a major move by Microsoft in years, the Redmond-based tech firm is now giving users an option to not see the "Safely Remove Hardware" option while pulling out a connected USB storage device.

Connect the storage device to the Windows PC. However, to do this, Windows can not cache disk write operations. "This may degrade system performance", Microsoft states in a support document.

-When the device is connected, click on the "Start" option on the desktop followed by "File Explorer".

Select "quick removal" or "better performance".

It also should prevent Windows from wanting to scan your device to fix any errors the next time you plug it in, if you did not go through the proper process of clicking on the "Safely Remove Hardware" icon in the system tray beforehand.

Select the external drive file (through the label). However, if it is not, you should definitely make sure you're running the latest version and the setting has changed before you start yanking USBs with abandon.

Select Disk Management from the options.

In the lower section of the Disk Management window, right-click the label of the device, and then click Properties.
