This simple executable improves ejecting removable drives, but includes an irritating pop-up. Safe Device's interface is a simple list of removable drives with a trio of function buttons. You won't need a manual for this app.
Operating Safe Device is very easy. You merely choose a drive and press either the Device Flush or Device Eject button. Ejecting a device is much quicker than with the usual Windows process. Flushing a device's cache data is immediate. Applications using removable drives also are listed, and the Windows Flush function quickly removes application-delayed write data.
During testing the app was occasionally interrupted by an error dialog pop-up. The error didn't affect program operation and is easily dismissed. Safe Device is a very useful app for anyone using removable drives.
Safe Device is a support tool for safe eject of hardware. This software lists removable disk drives, and finds applications which use the drives. Moreover, this software can flush cache data (delayed write data), which are not written into the drives yet, and can safely eject the devices.
