Safely Remove USB / USB device

Safely Remove USB
Safely Remove USB

As an industrial standard that supported hot swapping, Universal Serial Bus (USB) has been widely used in data transformation. But no matter you are using mac OS or microsoft windows, you cannot actually do hot swapping on current usb storage device. You'll have to "disconnect" the device first, and it's so unnecessary.

However, since we never know if the device is been loading or not, disconnection beforehand to prevent demage is still necessary, but it can be far more less annoying. With carefully designed shape integrating disconnecting function, "Safely Remove USB" allows you to use your usb storage more easily and instinctively.
