I am Vice President of a computer user group and at times I am using up to four
jump drives. Before installing your program I had to remember which drive
was inserted in which port. Now that is no longer a problem as each USB drive
is identified and I know which to remove.
It certainly is a great program!

This little program is exactly what I was looking for. The most valuable program
feature for me is the ability to name the various USB devices that are connected
to my computer and to be able to give them descriptive names that make sense to
me so I know which device I'm stopping. I sometimes have 3 or 4 flash drives
connected and now I don't have to remember which drive letter goes with which
flash drive. Also, the ability to hide devices is very handy. No more
accidentally stopping my external CD burner because I clicked on the wrong
device in the list. The last time I did that was what prompted me to search
for a program like this one. I'm glad I came across your site
and found USB Safely Remove.
I purchased the program because somewhere I read in a Forum very scary comments
about a person who lost all his data on a USB stick because he unplugged it
from his PC without using the standard Windows "Safely Remove Hardware" facility,
and on top of that I ruined one of my own USB sticks because I did the same. Your
program makes it so much easier to unplug a USB device, especially a USB stick,
without causing damage, and to do this selectively, one by one. Maybe, in your
marketing, you could emphasize the security that your wonderful program offers.

What a fantastic program! This should really replace the Standard Windows
Safely Remove program which is next to useless in my opinion. Also on my
system (WinXP Pro/SP2) the standard icon in the Systray keeps disappearing
for days on end and then will suddenly reappear for a while. Very worrying
and I have spent days trying to get to the bottom of it. Unsuccessfully
I might add, which is why I'm so pleased to have discovered your tool on
The one-click feature was something that really impressed me as it
was really well thought it is very user-friendly and extremely fast.
I tested it with 4 hard drivers, pen and cammera, tested the
hotkeys, and not a single bug poped-up, I was really impressed by the
stability of your program.
I have an external 400GB hard drive attached via USB to my laptop. Naturally I
want to unmount this properly, if I have to take my laptop somewhere!
However, with the Windows utility, I would always get a message just saying
"Unable to stop device - try later". So I would have to shut the system down
to be sure (no ways am I just pulling the USB cable out & risking Windows
screwing up the directory of my 400 GB of data!).
I had tried with tools like ProcessExplorer to track down which processes were
locking the drive, but you need a PhD to interpret ProcessExplorer's data!!!
So being able to run USBSafelyRemove and instantly discover which processes I
had to terminate, so that I could safely unmount my drive, was an
OUTSTANDING feature for me, and justified the price of the program on the spot!!!
