I'm trying to eject a Toshiba External Harddrive. However, when I right click it I don't see any eject button, and I also do not see the "safely remove hardware" button on the bottom right hand corner of the screen. Please help! I need to get it out ASAP.
Is the "safely remove hardware icon" perhaps behind "show hidden icons" shield on tray?
Turning ot off once is fine but I would not make a habit of that. What you can do is right click the drive in "disks" in "Device Manager" then "Properties", "Policies" and check "optimize for quick removal" then you can not worry about "safe removal" anymore. It will slow the drive slightly but you most likely will barely notice it. If it is already checked then you have your explanation.
