    Remove SD card from "Safely remove devices" daialogue box?


    I have a tablet with 32gb internal memory. I bought s 64gb MicroSD card that has my Onedrive folder and system libraries on it. I will use a dab of hot glue to semi-permanently lock it in, as I have no intention of ever removing it.

    But the SD card still shows up in the "Safely Remove Hardware" Dialogue box. How can I take it out?

    Thanks.

    The port, and in turn the card, will always be identified as a removable device, never seen that to be a problem except on my Desktop that has a Card Reader [in place of the floppy drive] and the times I plug in Thumb drives and only in assuring I click on the correct drive I want to remove.

    I would not recommend the glue-it-in, what are you going to do if the SD goes bad?

    Um, swap it out? It's hot glue. It doesn't fuse to anything other than really porous stuff like cloth and pops off easily.

    Some does, some doesn't. The glue sticks are not all alike.
