I have a SATA drive in an external case. When I hotplug it, Windows doesn't see it until I go to device manager and have it scan for hardware changes. It the detects it, but it shows as a fixed disk, not a removable disk. Is there a way (registry edit?) to tell Windows that this specific hard drive is a removable drive so I can stop it before disconnecting? I checked the Properties..Policies tab on the drive and write caching is disabled but I'm still afraid Windows will find some way to corrupt it if I disconnect it unexpectedly.
