AHCI drives and Safely Remove Harware
I have a set of SATA cables hanging out by PC. I use them to plug in my backup-drives.
All drives are AHCI. Only drives which were plugged in at boot are listed for Safely Remove Hardware. I hot-plug my backup drives one by one. Not being able to Safely Remove, after doing a backup I have to check for activity with Resource Monitor to know when it is safe to unplug that drive and plug in the next one.
Is there a remedy for this?
EDIT: I'm an idiot. The "flying" lead was plugged into a SATA extender board. Replugged and now all OK.
