If you already have a license for USB Safely Remove, the cheapest option is to upgrade right now to Zentimo = 50% off!  :up:

I was going to ask about the difference between the two.
But then I found Chris's review:

First quick impression about the new version is that it takes additional resources on my old/slow XP box, but I have to recheck after a clean reboot...

I remember the days when $20 got you a lifetime upgrade path. I guess they changed that.

I've never really paid much attention to USB Safely Remove or Zentimo, but lots of people are using these programs so maybe I'm missing something. Guess I'll install one and give it a test drive to see if there's any functionality it offers that warrants a purchase.

It's become quite popular after Microsoft mutilated the USB eject stuff, that was working just fine in Windows XP, in Windows Vista, and didn't fix it with Windows 7.

I've always heard about Microsoft borking this or that in regards to the USB eject stuff, but I have always just waited till a USB device's activity light has gone out & yanked it without doing any USB eject command. Never have suffered any data loss....so again....I must be missing something. :)

Hm, must confirm the other way around. I did have issues after copying files, and not being able to read them 5 minutes later on another PC. After waiting for the light top stop flashing, ofc.
And write-caching is in it's default Off setting in most Windows installs.

Never had these issues after using either the native Windows USB Eject stuff, or USBSR (or Zentimo during the short time I used that), so I'm sticking to the 'Better Safe then Sorry' practice, and accept losing a few seconds every time I have to eject one of my several USB drives.
