Removing from "Safely Remove Hardware" thingy
Personal issue which I've just encountered :D
Bought a shiney new hard drive (if anyone wants performance with price, the samsung F3 drives are absolutely unbeatable!) to replace my RAID 5 setup with. Removed RAID from the bios, slapped it all in an AHCI, and away I went. Performance is absolutely wonderful - read speed WAY in excess of the RAID and write isn't far off - which is ruddy amazing (or of course shows how bad FakeRAID is ;) )
However, as a result, all of my HDD's show up in "Safely Remove Hardware". I can easily get rid of that, lots of google hits from it - however I just want to remove the static HDD's from that list. I use a sata docking station thing (most useful gadget I own!) so I do need it for that. Any hints? I'm at a loss, and leaving them there is ruddy risky!
And yes, before anyone asks, it appears I do have a subconscious fetish for brackets ;)
