Eject USB Disk Faster with USB Disk Ejector
By on May 17th, 2008

Having a lot of USB drives is a great help to backup files and store your media library and so on. Plugging in a USB drive is fairly easy but ejecting it needs to be done with care so that there is no data loss or damage to the drive.

Windows by default provides you with a utility which will allow you to safely remove the USB hardware from your PC without causing any damage to it. That said the utility provided by Windows has a long way to go with their interface which is very confusing to the end user.

USB Disk Ejector is a software that will allow you to quickly remove USB devices in Windows. The software was originally designed to only remove pen drives but can now remove any type of attached USB devices safely.

Why Should You Use This If Windows Already Provides a User Interface?

Like I already said the Windows user interface leaves a lot to be desired and I wish they could make it a little less complicated than what it is.

USB Disk Ejector on the other hand has a simple interface and directly shows you the attached devices which you can then easily remove from the PC.

As you can see you can even remove IPOD directly from the interface by simply double clicking on it.

The software also provides a CLI (Command Line Interface) using which you can

  • Eject the drive that the program is running from.
  • Eject a drive by specifying a drive letter.
  • Eject a drive by specifying a drive name.
  • Eject a drive by specifying a partial drive name.

Summarizing

I will definitely be using this software since I have a pen drive, portable HDD, Backup Drive and IPOD which I use along almost daily and this definitely helps my task of ejecting those drives as safe as possible.

How many USB devices do you use? Do you think this software will be useful to you? Let me know through your comments.

    This tool will be very useful for me because many times when I tried to disconnect the USB drive from my laptop, I got the message that I couldn’t do that because the Windows was busy.

    it is good but it could be best if we can again insert the usb without unplugging the usb devices
