Safely Remove & Shut Down WD Element

I have WD Element 10B8 drive and use Windows 7 32 bit. When I want to eject my drive, I use “safely remove” option from Windows and it’s accepted. But my drive and it’s LED is still on, although I can’t access it. I try to use WD Smartware too, but there is no “safely remove” option in there. Can someone help me to safely remove and shut down my drive?


If you select “Safely Remove” option and it says the drive has been removed safely then you can just disconnect the drive.

@Hamlet Yes sir. But my drive is still on when the windows confirm to safely remove. How to make it shut down when the connector is still on and then safely to remove?
