Ejecting hard drive before turn off

I was wonder if we need to eject the hard drive before turning off the WD TV live?

I started doing it, when I recently lost a flash device with minor important content. never experienced that before, but now I am very careful, espiecially with my backup drives with lots of files.


Oh I see, do you unplug the USB too?

Sorry, I misread your question as  “do you eject before you unplug?”.

No, I do not eject when turning off
