Post subject:  Removable drives without drive letters are not listed

Hi, I noticed that when I mount a USB drive, and I do not assign a drive letter to the drive, that the drive is not listed under the mouse click remove menu.

I have to open the advanced menu to remove this drive.

The normal windows safely remove does list the device.

Maybe add an option to also list drives without drive letters?

Thanks
P.

Hi,

The program thinks the device does not require safe removal and therefore it hides it from stopping menu. You can go to the main window (by clicking to "Hidden devices" link and you will see there your device in "Hidden from the menu" section). Just drag it to "Visible in the menu" section and you will see it there forever.

Ok, thank you, I will try the drag technique.
