Windows Is Giving Up On Getting You To 'Safely Remove' USB Drives

  • With Windows 10 1809, Microsoft drops safe removal of USB drives as the default option

As part of a new update, the Redmond company has modified the way Windows 10 handles disconnecting USBs or Thunderbolt storage devices.

Quick removal. This policy manages storage operations in a manner that keeps the device ready to remove at any time.

Select Policies, and then select the policy you want to use.

While the quick removal policy will be the default for all hardware, you can choose "Better Performance" policy for improved system performance. When this policy is in effect, Windows can cache write operations to the external device. However, with version 1809, Quick Removal will become the default instead.

Two options "Better Performance" and "Quick Removal" will be available for the User.

With this change, users will no longer have to select "Safely Remove USB device" before unplugging it from their PC-at least by default.

However, if you do experience reduced performance or simply prefer the process of manually selecting to safely remove your hardware, here's how to change a drive back to "Better Performance". Since the arrival of USB drives, we have been warned that they need to be "safely removed" using the correct method in Windows, rather than just being yanked out - but now this changes. The Quick removal policy makes it so that the system is always in a state that's prepared to eject a USB drive, but at the cost of speed as Windows can not cache disk write operations.

With the Windows 10 update, the default removal procedure for USB drives will be set to "Quick Removal" which removes the need for the "Safely Remove Hardware" process, and allows you to unplug your device just like that.

Well, Better Performance facilitates fast data transfers and storage operations.

Connect the device to the computer.

Right click start and go to File Explorer.

The change applies to USB thumb drives, external hard drives, flash drives, and even data transfer connections between PCs and smartphones.

Go to Start Menu Disk Management. -In the lower section of Disk Management, right click on the label of the device followed by "Properties".
