    why do I always get this Error about Ejecting Storage Device?


    Everytime I use my Flash Drive/Storage Device and then select the icon "Safely Remove it", I get this warning box. I colse out all that is open, try again and still get this box up. So I restart my PC and when back up I click "Safely Remove" and it allows me to remove it without this box. It is a pain to have to restart everytime I use that Flash Drive. See Attached.

    :)
