When ever I shut off my external HD (running in USB 2.0 enclosure) while in Windows, I get this warning in Event Viewer: Source: FTDISK, Number 57. I like the site below for Windows errors. Much of the info there seems to come fom Microsoft. So my question is: How can an error message exist in Windows without Microsoft knowing what it means? What do you think- they fired the programmer right after he wrote the code,LOL.

FTDisk stands for Fault-Tolerant Disk Systems:

A fault-tolerant disk system is intended to provide mechanisms for reducing the likelihood of data loss in the event of a failure.
Try disconnecting device by double clicking the usb icon on the task bar, and clicking Unplug. It should display a safe to unplug this device message

So simple. Thanks a lot. Tunnel vision on my part, I guess. Always thought of "safe to remove hardware" as an uninstall type thing, not a shutdown. Have always had it hidden.
