Post subject:  Option to NOT SHOW 'brick back' device option PLEASE!

I originally installed USB Safely Remove because it got me rid of a very big frustration: my wireless stick kept showing up first and I would accidentally click it instead of USB the drive, disconnecting myself from the Internet.

U.S.R. allowed me to manage the devices I want showing up on safely remove, so by hiding the wireless stick it made my problem go away. That was version 3.

With the advent of 'bring device back' introduced in 4, I find myself back in hell. I sometimes forget I have already safely removed a device and when I see that green arrow there, I just naturally assume something wasn't removed so I click the device to 'remove' it again without time to notice the red X over its icon. This causes Windows to bring the device back, and in doing so it for some reason RESETS THE USB WIRELESS ADAPTER in the process.

I've done setting the device as a CARD READER and then setting card readers to be hidden when there are no drives in 'em. It works. But since I get sticks from all sorts of people I have to set EACH new device as 'card reader' the first time I plug it in. This is annoying. U.S.R. is supposed to be about making things easier.

Won't you PLEASE provide an option for disabling the 'bring back' option or tray icon? Some of us have no use for it anyway. I know it's nice to show off it can do a lil more than other software, and I do appreciate the new stuff such as restricting devices from assigning certain letters. But in my case this bringback feature causes more hassle than it takes away. And there is no way of deactivating it.

In the version 4.1 we introduced a feature to change icon depending on the state of devices.
* Normally when all visible on the menu devices are active the program displays usual icon in the tray
* When there are at least one device on the menu is stopped we display red cross on the system tray icon
* When there are no devices connected at all we display small zero on the system tray icon.

Probably this will reduce your "hell".

Anyway in the next versions we consider adding your requested feature
