How to add "Unmount" function from Vista to Win7 context menus
So I wasn't too fond of Vista's heavy pull on resources. But one function I miss greatly....is the right click function to Unmount a drive. I don't know if this was equivalent to "safely remove" or not, never really looked into it. But I never had an issue arise from using this function and being an audio engineer and video editor, lets say I swap a LOT of external drives in a single day. So I'm assuming there wasn't an "issue" with this function and never understood why it was removed when I got my hands on Windows 7.
So enough backstory here! >_____< Sorry about that!
What I'm wondering is if anyone has added this function to their context menu and if they would share how via a tutorial. I'm sure I'm not the only person who has wanted this function(I know all my editor friends do after hearing my complaints of it missing!).
Yes I did search for this manually in the list under tutorials<context menu and with the search bar as well and I could not find it anywhere else on this forum....or through google for that matter.
I'm hoping it can be as simple as something like this tutorial by tweek: Bitlocker - Lock an Unlocked Drive
(on a side note I have the same issue the other people have with that function! Hoping I can get that fixed as well haha)

Yeah I saw that one in the list, but I don't want to pull up the Safely Remove Window. I want it to merely unmount as it did in Vista days. One click, it does the full operation. It really should be that simple, Linux/OSX have been doing it for years.
Thank you for the reply though!
