Question about new SATA HDD install?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I just got done installing a new Hitatchi Deskstar 80Gb SATA drive. My question is why does the "Safely Remove Hardware" icon appear in my tray and allow me to remove that drive? Everything is working good but is there a way that I can make this go away? What if I remove it, what will happen? Any help would be great!!

Yeah, it happens to everyone with Sata drives. You can't get rid of it, but you can hide the inactive icons which makes it disappear in the toolbar.

Sata drives are hot swappable and is the reasoning that you have that icon on your toolbar. You can plug/unplug it while the system is running, unlike IDE drives.

Will it restart if the Main HDD(OS) "safely removed"?
