Re: Removing Portable Hard Drives?
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.
