Eject external drive from MyCloudHome "safely"

Hi There,

After connecting an external drive to MyCloudHome, I now want to “safely eject it”.

I’ve looked all accross the dashboard on my phone and online, but can’t find somewhere that suggest i can eject it.

There must be a way without turning of mycloudhome.

Please can someone let me know how i can do this?

The USB drive option of a My Cloud Home does not support the safe eject option.
If your drive is NTFS, HSF+, unsafe eject should not result in a dirty bit as those file systems are more residual.

If you are using exFAT, I would power off the My Cloud Home, remove the USB drive and power on the My Cloud Home if dirty bit or data corruption on the exFAT file system is of a major concern.
