Your choice on this one
I have an external hard drive and it says in the instructions to use the remove hardware deal of xp to disconnect it. I don't want to disconnect it. I am usinfg it for storage and was wondering if i could just shut down wondows and then the external drive, or what, Its a western digital usb drive with a power button. I don't want to have to go throught the shut down with the remove hardware thing if its possible.
