Microsoft removes safe removal of USB drives as the default option

With Windows 10 1809, Microsoft drops safe removal of USB drives as the default option

But Microsoft has announced that this won't be the case starting with Windows version 1809. Soon, you won't have to worry about the possibility of corrupted files, as Windows will allow you to remove storage devices at any time. The policy set will remain unchanged for the particular USB storage device until you change it.

While the quick removal policy will be the default for all hardware, you can choose "Better Performance" policy for improved system performance.

In other words, you may lose something on the performance front, which is exactly why the other option, "better performance", is so named.

The practice of "safely removing" USB sticks dates back to an era when there was a genuine risk of losing data by failing to warn Windows that you're about to force an unexpected transfer termination.

Well, Better Performance facilitates fast data transfers and storage operations.

The change comes as the October 2018 Update rolls out, and Microsoft explains that: "Windows defines two main policies, Quick removal and Better performance, that control how the system interacts with external storage devices such as USB thumb drives or Thunderbolt-enabled external drives". Better Performance means the drive will perform better when plugged in, but at the cost of requiring a safe removal process be followed in order to ensure no data loss when unplugging it.

Microsoft has confirmed that on Windows 10 you no longer have to go through the process of "safely removing" a pen drive. It is noted that "you can change the policy setting for each external device, and the policy that you set remains in effect if you disconnect the device and then connect it again to the same computer port".

How to change the policy for an external drive? .

Open File Explorer then go to This PC, and make note of your device's drive letter (such as "USB Drive (C:)").

Right click Start and then choose Disk Management.

In the lower section of the Disk Management window, right-click the label of the device, and then click Properties.
