Can the developer tell me if this will play nice with USBDLM (USB Drive Letter Manager)?

Robert Garofalo,
They are compatible unless you use drive letter management functions in USB Safely Remove, e.g. fixed drive letters, hiding drives of card readers etc.

If you've ever plugged in a usb device and failed to have it recognized or tried to disconnect a USB device using the Windows disconnect and found that the device is still in use then you'll find this program very useful. It can even display hidden USB devices used on the computer such as the Wireless mouse.

I downloaded and installed the software. Antivirus reported it as harmful, so I deactivated antivirus for the installation. I registered with my email and got the activation key. When installing, I'm being told that the program had been activated by GAOTD. So where do I enter the activation key I received by email?
I can't find this program in the folder Program Files nor Program Files (x86). So where has it gone?
Tnx for clarification.

Tried to install on Windows 10 system, Turned off the virus checker. It showed it was installing. I checked the boxes to install the icons. I do not see a quick launch button which I assume would be in the task bar, When I click on the shortcut it doesn't appear to do anything.

Do you have to have a USB device installed running before the program opens,

@Igor Tkachenko,

I purchased USB Safely Remove before learning about Zentimo xStorage Manager, which I also purchased a license for. As a previous purchaser of both products, I was interested in the discounted offer for the current Zentimo version. On the Zentimo order page, the Personal License has a choice of 1 year, 2 years, or lifetime upgrades. The lifetime is $35.94. Below the choice of licenses (Personal, Commercial, Unlimited Site License) were two lines:
If you are an existing Zentimo customer see extending upgrade subscription plans.
"USB Safely Remove" customers can obtain the license for Zentimo at special discounted prices!

Great, I thought, ... previous Zentimo purchasers are being honored with a better discount, ... but when I arrived at that page, the price to have the Lifetime license is $39.90. People that Crystal Rich has already made money off of do not get a better deal after all. What gives there?

Even more interesting is that the page for USB Safely Remove customers can get the lifetime Zentimo for $29.95. Since Zentimo is a more expensive product, shouldn't previous Zentimo customers get a better deal than previous USB Safely Remove customers? And what about those of us that purchased both in the past? We helped make Crystal "Rich!"

Windows has this feature built in...just right click and click "eject" when you finish saving files to your USB drive...NEVER have I had a problem using this method...NO need at all for this software...just sayin`

Gilbert, Quote, "Windows doesn’t allow you to stop a device?" Don't know what the question mark is all about, but yes Windows does have this capability, for all the OS's listed. With that said I have used "USB Safely Remove" in the past, on another computer and it works quite well and has more function than the Windows utility.

Reply   |   Comment by JonE  –  2 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

Gilbert, while your method works most of the times, there is one little problem that I have encountered quite often. If I do connect an external hard drive and carry out some operations and if I do want to eject it, the systems returns a very long message that it cannot be removed. One does not know what operation is being carried out and when it will be over. As a last resort, one has to restart the system to disconnect the drives. This application may help remove those situations too.

Gilbert,
The right click eject doesn't prepare device for safe removal. For most devices you can still browse a device drive in Explorer after you "ejected" it.

Igor Tkachenko,

The right click eject does prepare the device for safe removal.
Do not get fooled by internet-hear-say from companies to try to sell you stuff which you do not need.

Moreover, in Windows you can configure it to always use safe write-method oppose to quick write-method, so that you do not even need to manually eject the drive.

Learn to use Windows people, instead of falling for hear-say and commercial crap/bloat software and then complain you're computer is running slow with 1245423134 processes in the background (which you don't even know about)...... but hey, there are programs to 'fix' that too.....

Oscar,
This statement "The right click eject does prepare the device for safe removal" is totally false. For most devices you can still browse a device drive in Explorer after you "ejected" it this way. You can check it by yourself.

Crystal Rich Ltd

Igor Tkachenko,

Browsing in explorer has no effect at all on the 'safety' of the removal.
It's the (pending/cached) writing jobs which might be problematic if you don't 'eject' the drive prior to physical removal and that is what 'right-clicking' does (finishing any pending writing jobs), unless you have configered Windows to always use the safe non-cached writing. In that case you don't even need to 'right-click for safe removal'.

Thus, again, the right click eject does prepare the device for safe removal. Do not get fooled by internet-hear-say from companies to try to sell you stuff which you do not need.

Reply   |   Comment by Oscar  –  2 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

Oscar,
If Exploer can browse device after it's "safe removal" it means that any other program can also access device and make new writing jobs before you disconnect the device.

This "Eject" is aimed to only eject media from its carrying device. In case of a card reader or a DVD player it works, the card is prepared to remove and the DVD disk is ejected. In case of flash drives it may not work if the device controller doesn't handle properly this eject command (IOCTL_STORAGE_MEDIA_REMOVAL request). And there's no "eject" option at all for external hard drives since they do not try to pretend they have some media in it like flash drives.

In short this "eject" doesn't prepare the device for safe removal and it's better to avoid it. Note I don't say that you have to use our program for safe removal.

Igor Tkachenko,

Downloaded, installed twice on Win 7, received S/N by email. There is an icon in the toolbar allowing one to eject different USB devices. Right clicking on the icon does not bring up the program allowing the insertion of the S/N. The program is not visible in Process Lasso Pro as a running process but I clearly see an icon in the toolbar. The website says to right click the icon and open Help, as per usual, but this produces no effect. Strangely, selecting the link "Crystal Rich Ltd" to email Igor leads to a warning on Firefox of possible malware. Selecting the link to the forum site opens a page but no text can be introduced in the text box after selecting any of the feedback options. Comment #14 has the same problem but Igor has not responded.

Thanks GOTD and Crystal Rich (Igor T.) for this program. Registration e-mail for the key, and download from the safelyremove page where fast, and no problems. Haven't had a chance to use it yet, but from the responses I have read, I know it will be another keeper for my pc, as I never did like the windows built in version of a removal tool.

Scherry, Did you have a previous version (5.2) on that machine? I had 5.3 and that type of warning came up. It was apparently because the earlier license was for the earlier version and not valid for this giveaway. Not surprising. So I entered the key (received instantaneously by email) as instructed and all was hunky-dory.
Though Windows 10 can do an "eject", I have found this software convenient and quick to find when needed. Right there in the System Tray.

I nearly always get the 'file is corrupted' message, but it never is. What I do is to keep the donwload, go into Safety Mode, and then run it (which always succeeds). That way you can keep your antivirus running, but you have the choice of taking the risk if you wish.

Installed with no problem, but I have an older version of Zentimo (Version 1.4 Released December 09, 2011) which seems to conflict with today's Safely Remove when they both are running. I realize I should upgrade Zentimo and uninstall today's Safely Remove. Is there a site which shows Zentimo's current features vs. the version I have?

Grab this while you can! We've been using this program for years and just upgraded from Version 5 to 6 with no problems (I closed the old one first). One nice option that we appreciate is the option to let it run for all users. Another is the ability to change the icons. We have multiple external drives so by right clicking on one and then choosing 'Device Properties' and then 'Device Image' and 'Change', I can make each device's icon its actual color (blue, red...) making it almost impossible to remove the wrong device by mistake. Thank you, Crystal Rich.

Somehow using USB Safely remove my Renesas Electronics usb 3.0 root hub was disabled after ejecting a usb 3.0 thumb drive.

"Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware because a previous instance of the device driver is still in memory. (Code 38)"

Please advice.

Reply   |   Comment by StrayCat  –  2 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+2)

StrayCat, that issue was caused by reactivation of your thumb drive (Return Back feature). Some old versions of USB 3.0 hub drivers doesn't support command for hub restart and it moves the hub to this state on attempt to return device back.

First of all reboot your PC to return the hub to a normal state. Next try to update your USB 3.0 hub drivers (or drivers for the whole chipset).

I have been using USB Safely remove for years. It is so much better than the Windows default, and shows everything you would want to know about what USB connections are on your computer. You can even hide connections that are more permanent such as hubs and drives you do not disconnect a lot. Comes in handy so you do not accidentally eject them and have to get to the back of your computer to reset for them to be seen by Windows again.

In addition to great customer service, Crystal Rich has a lifetime license available, which I bought years ago and never regretted it. I am sure Zentimo is just as good as USB Safely Remove, I just never had the need for all it offers.

Thanks GAOTD and Crystal Rich, for another great offering!

With this program you also know when it is safe to remove the USB. I have USB with and without lights.

There's a quite an impressing list of improvements and bug fixes since the last version that was offered here on giveawayoftheday.

What's new in version 6.0 at a glance?

Improved forced stop:
Now the forced stop will unlock the device in all cases where earlier versions failed: svchost, an NTFS issue (so called $Extend$RmMetadata$TxfLog isue), when some low level program like antivirus, backup locked the drive etc. Besides now the program shows even such locking processes that open a direct connection to the drive (e.g. HD Tune) without access to the file system.
-Support for High-DPI monitors
-Improved usb 3 support

Take care.

I highly recommend USB Safely Remove. I've been using a previous version of this (which I also got a as a giveaway) for about 18 months, and just upgraded to this newer version. I didn't need to uninstall the old version first.

Sometimes after I've copied files to a USB flash drive, I pull out the drive to soon and the files don't get written properly. By using USB Safely Remove, I avoid this. When you use it to eject a drive, before ejecting it, it makes sure everything has been written to the drive. So, when it says the flash drive has been ejected, I know it's safe to pull out the drive.

I have configured the system tray icon for USB Safely Remove to always be shown in the Task Bar, which gives me instant access to it. You can Google how to always show the icons for any program which puts an icon in the system tray, if you don't know how to do this.

" I didn't need to uninstall the old version first." Really?
I did run the 2484KB Setup.exe from gotd and it said successfully activated.
in the tray the old version from 5.3 is still active.

So i downloaded v6.0.8 from sr directly. and then i installed it, the old version was replaced, that's right.
a test with the
old license key showed, it's not valid for v6 but the new lkey said valid gotd for v6 like prior valid to v5.

finished. thanks.

Brian, Just drag the icon from the box to the taskbar instead.
