    Default USB safe remove is blocked by task manager

    Hi all,

    I've installed W8RP on new ssd in my laptop, so i've removed old hdd out there and made it portable USB drive.

    Usually I work with documents which used to be in "My Documents" folder on portable drive (Initial folder opening was vary long - I suppose because it was special folders of another OS installation).
    When I press "Safe remove" menu item, Windows reports it cannot safely remove my hdd. This happens only when Task manager is running. If I close TM drive is removed immediatly.

    Is it bug or kind of feature?

    Probably a bug, but you might try a Custom Re-install of Win 8 RP on the SSD.

    You may try to update the USB driver and check if it helps or re-install the USB controllers.
