"A SUPERB PRODUCT AND A NIFTY TOOL WITH A GREAT GUI ."

October 22, 2008  |  By saketss

 |  Version: USB Safely Remove 4.0.5.707

Pros

Ability to eject card reader memory cards
Return device back feature
Stops any kind of hot-swap device
Drive letters management
Exploring a device drive in alternative file manager
Mount point support

Hiding drives of empty card reader slots

Cons

THERE SHOULD BE NO CONS WITH SUCH A GEM OF A PRODUCT.

Summary

USB Safely Remove is a useful tool that manages your USB devices and is a good replacement for the standard "Safely Remove Hardware" tool.

USB Safely Remove is a comfortable 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).

The device stopping menu will now show only the devices you really need. You can easily change the name of any device - make it plain or, on the opposite, very detailed. In most cases, USB Safely Remove assigns simple names automatically.
You can assign a beautiful standard icon to the device, or upload your own from a disc. For instance, you can assign any photograph to your USB Flash Drive.

Besides, USB Safely Remove is a wonderful tool automating the work with your devices. It allows you to set up program startup at plugging or unplugging the device, and has a built-in powerful command line.

USB Safely Remove gives those who mainly work with a keyboard an opportunity of stopping devices or viewing their contents using keyboard shortcuts.

But the main thing is that the unique technology allows USB Safe Removal to accurately define what prevents the removal and get rid of the problem easily.

"Way better than native removal tool!"

September 22, 2008  |  By jsovey

 |  Version: USB Safely Remove 4.0.5.707

Pros

First it makes removing drives a snap. Click the icon and then the drive. Better yet use assignable shortcuts. has an option to see volume name instead the confusing device name. Also tells what program stops removal so you can close it.

Cons

not a problem so far

Summary

The icon hides when no there is no device to remove so its never a hindrance. There when you need it, only the stroke of a shortcut. makes removal VERY speedy. If you have ever been annoyed by the native device removal, this will solve it.

"Not Free and doesn't work"

September 05, 2008  |  By crackers018

 |  Version: USB Safely Remove 4.0.5.707

Pros

It has a nice feature to show all items or hide certain ones. It also assigns each drive a letter, so every time you plug it in it will be the same letter drive.

Cons

IT'S NOT FREE! The download.com page said there is a nag-screen, it does have a nag-screen, but it says how much longer you have to evaluate the software before your 30-day evaluation is over.

Summary

It also won't stop my hard drive because when it tells you what apps are preventing it from opening, it says "USB Safely Remove". so even if you did want to pay for it, it's not worth the money
