Default Removing Portable Hard Drives?

Most likely a stupid question; but I bought a portable hard drive today, and I just attempted to safely remove it, only to see that the option isn't there. Is it fine to just unplug it? Can that corrupt the data like it can with flash drives?

some people would kill me for saying this, but as long as you're not transferring files, or in the process of booting or shutting down, feel free to unplug the drive whenever. I do it all the time with my external hybrid drive, and it's perfectly fine.

I don't hate you ZM. In fact, if the HDD is current, like 2008 and up I'd say, unplugging it won't matter. If it has an off possibility, turn it off first then unplug. Back in the day it might have been an issue. We're awesome today.

Standard rule still applies that if possible, don't do it. The chances of something going wrong by doing so are very slim as long as your not reading/writing/accessing the drive but at the same time yes, it can happen.

Sometimes just going into the device manager and doing a rescan for new hardware brings back the safe remove option.
