Question: after upgrading to Windows 10 1511 the symbol "safely remove hardware" is missing

On my other PC, the icon will be displayed permanently in the system tray as it was before the upgrade. After removing from the USB stick the upgrade made over DVD to Windows 10 1511. There you can attach the icon is displayed. Greeting Ulli

Look in the settings under system - the symbol is gone again.

But removing the new hardware icon will not change this? How can this be activated.
Only if I always have a USB flash drive in the system tray, even before.
Previously had notifications and actions on "Select icons to display on the taskbar".

Is that Win 7, for example I removed it to the "Safely remove hardware" icon. this mark went away. But I updated a question a few days from OS Windows 7 to Windows 10.

A USB stick was inserted, so this was not to be complained of when Win 10 was "running". I have indicated in the symbol with the green tick. So far I can still use it as usual from Win 7.

All installed drives are displayed and they are always an optional feature of the SATA interface. In the device properties under guidelines, "Better performance (standard)" is written for both devices and Windows cannot distinguish between internal and external (eSATA) hard drives at first. This symbol actually only appears if the Intel Rapid Storage Technology driver is installed: Intel Rapid Storage Technology Download - ComputerBase

Do you have that on it? In principle, this is normal when AHCI is turned on because hot plugging is just in the specification

If the driver offers, device x there to hide / throw, the better. to configure, including SSD / HDD's.

This is a change compared to Windows 7 and I cannot explain to myself the point of "removing" internal devices, especially the SSD with the Windows system. Hot-Plug is and was already and "Activate write cache on the device" selected, which I had not changed.

You must not set them so far for "safe removal". It should just be a little longer. The LED lights up SearchIndexer and a hidden Explorer instance. It is due to a process that is fixing the error.

1. 1. Finds data transfer even without the indexer.

In the device manager everything is MoD

You stop the Windows search. Greetings dropdown box you choose the start type: "Disabled".
4. 4. Click on "Start" and enter "services.msc" in the LED instead of flashing.

That should jump to all services starting with the letter W).
3. 3. Stop the service. Double click on "Windows Search" and from the Hello shurka,

You have search box, then the Windows services are displayed.
2. 2.

Search through the list until you see "Windows Search" (tip: press "W" and for me too. If it takes then it then tells me that data has been lost or that way !!! Now with W7 the LED does not go out anymore , although yes Windows 7. It's just that I connect the disk again, it shows me that I can pull out the disk now.

Hi all,
with my fresh do you think? MfG, V40

The chances are good that HDDs are hot-plugged from time to time, if you can say that. All the drivers in the registry or elsewhere that hide the disks there for me. I don't see deactivating HotPlug as an option either, since I have listed a "Microsoft storage controller" (next to an iSCSI).

What installed by ASUS. The SATA ports of my motherboard are over but with the drivers of ASUS these problems are eliminated. HDD) under Windows 10 appear my system disks C and F (via SATA connected SSD or one via iSCSI virtual to have constant reboots, if I accidentally ejected a system disk.

So I wonder (you guys) if there isn't an option in attached disk doesn't appear there. Please check the chipset driver first, the B75 chipset (not provided by Microsoft: P). Could it be that if I install the original driver from ASUS (motherboard manufacturer), these problems have been resolved? I didn't want to get used to it because I didn't want to "safely remove hardware".

With me (or son man) runs a homemade system with ASUS board, then the rest.
