    USB Drive Optimise for Quick Removal

    In the process of trying to rescue a teacher's USB stick I was in the dark depths of device manager and noticed you can switch a USB drive to this state so you don't have to do safely remove!

    How long's this feature been in Windows? (and why didn't anyone tell me )

    Ready for answers ranging from (Win95 to WinMe )

    regards

    Simon

    PS Is it the default setting nowadays and if not - how can I force it to be so?

    Since Win 200 I think.. IIRC it's on by default for flash drives, since people have a habit of yanking them out, but not for USB hard drives and the like, since performance is sooo much better with it optimised for caching.
