Are you using the Safely Remove USB option when you remove a stick from the computer? Here’s what you need to know

It is impossible not to be ‘hit’ at least once by an expert who has advised you to use “safely remove USB” option from the computer. The new Windows has just permanently closed this subject. With the new operating system Windows 10, Microsoft has completely eliminated the option “safely remove USB”, introducing instead a new function or feature, called “quick removal”. Through this function, you will be able to remove an USB from the computer without risking all the content to be affected in any way.

According to Microsoft, technically speaking, there was not this kind of risk since Windows 7, in which many features of protection were implemented. One thing is clear now. It is not indicated to remove an USB from the computer when you try to write on it some information, because the data segment that was to be copied will not work.
