Windows 10 Safely Remove Hardware and Eject Media Icon cannot be hidden

Recommended Posts

Its showing because some of your SATA drives are configured to be hot plugable.

 

Go into your BIOS/UEFI and disable SATA Hot Plug and it should go away.

I have the same icon in my taskbar, as I use a WD My Book for backups. As far as I know, it cannot be hidden if removable media is connected.

When I had Windows 7, this little nusiance never showed up. I have no external drives connected whatsover.

The icon should show. The reason is that SATA drive are hot swappable. Meaning they support the ability to be ejected while the system runs. Windows and your SATA controller, doesn't know how you build computer. It doesn't if you got an ejectable drive module system, or screwed inside the case.

Just found out that the motherboard does not support SATA hot-plugging.
