I have a home-built PC running W7 pro with a Sata drive as the primary drive, and a second PATA drive for general file storage. This has been running fine for a couple of years. I have recently installed a hot swap sata drive bay into the pc, so I can plug my new SSD drive in and make backups. When I click into the system tray / notification area to 'safely eject device' I select the SSD drive, but the system 'ejects' both the SSD drive and the PATA drive. The PATA drive no longer shows up in 'My Computer' and no longer shows up in Computer Management / Storage. I have to reboot the PC to get the PATA drive to show again.
Firstly - how do I only eject the SSD drive?
Secondly - do I need to 'safely eject' if I know my backup to the SSD has finished - can I just take it out?
