    This policy only applies to external, USB-attached drives as far as I can tell (I have multiples of internal and external drives on my production PC and this holds true for all 9 of them presently attached/mounted). An article on this topic says "I only recommend this for USB flash drives that don't hold life or death information." I concur. That article also explains how to use the Properties window for a drive from File Explorer to change that default. Enable Quick Removal For USB External Devices - Tips4pc

    Hi Ed,
    Thanks for your reply. However my problem now is when i finish setup, i found the (Default) is aside the option of "Better performance". I would like to make the (Default) aside of the option "Quick removal". Is there any registry i could modify to make it happen? thanks.

    I see no answer was forthcoming on how to change the removal policy settings for removable drives.

    Apparently, "quick removal" is the default settings (and has been so for a long time), although many believe this is new since 1809.


    I, on the other hand, are not bothered by this but would like to know if the default can be set to "best performance" instead.

    the problem is of course, IF "best performance" is selected as the default, and the device is removed without using "safe removal" damage is now high risk, presumably why the policy change occurred in the first place.

    Is there anything on the tensforums discussing the pros and cons of either setting?

    Actually it also applies to any removable storage, all my internal, SATA port HDDs and SSDs are set as removable in the BIOS and they are in quick change trays. They are in the list of drives with "Safe removal" option.

    Quick removal is the default setting for external storage drives.

    Better performance is the default for internal (non-removable) drives.
