I just recently purchased my WD Elements 500 GB, and I noticed that I’m unable to remove it safely on my Windows 10 x64 PC. You know, when you go to taskbar and search for that “Safe to remove” icon.
I have tried everything.
- Tried to update firmware
- Tried to download USB Disk Ejector (suggestion on some other forum)
- Tried to turn off my Antivirus
As you can see, there is no option to safely remove the device:
USB Disk Ejector says
Oh yeah, I also tried to remove it via WD Smartware, but I couldn’t find the option there either.
I’m out of ideas.
Any kind of suggestion would really be helpful.
