USB Safely Remove v22.214.171.1247 Portable ML | 4.78 Mb
Safely Remove is a convenient and safe replacement for the standard
"Safely Remove Hardware" tool. The program has many features designed
for effortless working with hotplug devices (USB, SATA and FireWire).
"Return device back!" feature new!
you stopped a device, but still did not unplug it, sometimes it would
be very useful to return it back to the system. For example if you have
remembered you forgot to write a file to the drive after you stopped it.
In this case you are compelled to physically replug the device. However
sometimes it is quite inconvenient, e.g. if the device is connected to
the rear panel of the computer.
USB Safely Remove allows you to return your device back as easy as you do safe removal - in a one click!
you safely remove a device it will stay in the menu marked with red
cross. Just click to this "red-crossed" device to return it back!
Stops any kind of hot-swap devices. new!
new version can see and stop such devices like PCMCIA. Also it has a
unique feature to stop even those hot-swap devices whose drivers does
not support "authentic safe removal" (they cannot be seen in the native
Windows Safe Removal tool), e.g. Silicon Image SATA devices. USB Safely
Remove stops these devices via "disabling" (as Windows Device Manager
do), however it makes stopping of these devices convenient for user - in
the same manner as you do ordinary safe removal.
Safely remove in one click
program is an original and convenient tool for safely removing a
device. It also detects all devices connected and can be used to view
their drive contents. Just move the mouse pointer over the tray icon of
the program and you will see a multi-featured 'quick stop' menu with a
list of devices
One mouse click on the device and it is safely removed!
Get rid of unnecessary devices!
you afraid of accidentally stopping the card reader built into your
laptop or dongle? Annoyed by a SATA hard drive or ADSL modem in the
device list? Now you can hide any device from the stop menu in one
Global keyboard shortcuts
Do you like to
do everything using the keyboard? Now you can stop and view devices by
using just ONE hotkey! No need to remember keyboard shortcuts for each
device. If you are in any application, press the key combination (Win+S
by default) and you will see the stop menu. Use the Up\Down arrow keys
to select the device you need and either press 'Enter' to stop it or
'Ctrl+B' to view the contents of any storage device.
Correct and clear device names
USB Safely Remove, you will easily find the device you need to stop

manufacturer gave them. If you wish, you can assign your own custom name
and image for a device or choose from one of the pre-installed images.
Compare the following and you will see what solution will allow you to safely remove a flash disk without wasting your time.
The device cannot be stopped right now. Why?
encountered the situation when Windows does not allow you to remove a
device? Now this problem is solved once and for all. USB Safely Remove
will show you what programs are not allowing you to stop the device and
you can stop or disable them in one step.
Unique technology: "Guaranteed device stop"
Windows does not allow you to remove a device even if you close all
suspicious programs. This is a problem in the Windows kernel which most
often occurs in Windows XP. In most cases USB Safely Remove will allow
you to safely stop the device without losing any data. This means that
now you can absolutely rest assured about the safety of your data.
Notifications about connected and removed devices
people feel uncomfortable when they get no response to their actions.
USB Safely Remove is completely devoid of this problem. The program
shows a notification bubble containing the drive letter assigned to the
device not only after the device is disconnected, but also after it is
connected. Thus you will always know whether Windows has successfully
recognized the device and it can be used.
Starting programs after connecting and before removing a device
USB Safely Remove feature that distinguishes it from similar software
is its ability to not only start an application after connecting a
device, but also before removing it. This feature allows you to back up
data before disconnecting a removable hard drive, to run 'Total
Commander' with the contents of the drive on the connected flash disk,
automatically unmount an encrypted TrueCrypt drive before disconnecting
the USB media, etc.
Automating work with devices
Safely Remove has a powerful and convenient command line: 'usr.exe'
which allows you to automate tasks with your devices. For example, you
can automatically stop devices according to a schedule or in response to
any other event.
Working with any hotplug devices - USB, SATA, FireWire
important difference between the program and the standard 'Safely
Remove Hardware' icon is the possibility to see and disconnect all
hotplug devices. If USB Safely Remove does not show the device
immediately you need to select the "Display all storage devices"
checkbox in the USB Safely Remove settings.
Displaying volume labels instead of device names
you have several devices of the same type (like flash disks and
removable hard drives) it will be much more convenient to see volume
labels instead of device names. To do this just select the "Show volume
names instead of device names" checkbox.
Customizable icon in the system tray
people complain that the standard 'Safely Remove Hardware' icon
sometimes disappears at the most inappropriate moment. USB Safely Remove
completely replaces the standard 'Safely Remove Hardware' icon with its
own icon. By default, the USB Safely Remove icon is always displayed in
the system tray, which gives you quick access to the features of the
program and makes using USB more clear and predictable. However, you can
change this behavior and the icon will disappear when there are no
devices connected to the computer. To do so, select the "Hide icon when
there are no devices to be stopped" checkbox in the "Look And Feel"
section of the settings.
