    i mange to get the "safe to remove device" if i:
    1. turn off focus assist
    2. dont close the windows explorer with my usb hdd. if i dont close this window the "safe to remove device" pops up but if i close this window before i click on "safe remove device" it doesnt show up

    it still should show up even if i close the windows explorer window right?

    Try this:
    Right click start & choose run enter "rundll32.exe shell32.dll,Control_RunDLL hotplug.dll" without the quotes.Choose a drive to eject, once ejected icon should return.

    Or this from user Geosammy:
    Step 1. Go to > Settings > PrivacyStep 2. App Permissions > Background Apps.Toggle ‘Let apps run in the background’ switch to off. Restart computer. (action center not showing previously or new notifications)Step 3. Go back to the settings page, previously mentioned in step 1 and 2.Toggle the ‘Let apps run in the background’ switch to on, as described in Step 2.Restart once again. Action Center is now showing notifications. As well as the "Safe to remove" pop-up for flash drives without issues.

    When the icon disappears is there any drive/card connected via USB? The icon doesn’t show if nothing is connected.
    Is the icon set to show on the notification area/taskbar?

    Never mind I re-read your post & noticed it says the icon is showing.

    I suspect the notification pop-up has been removed as now the default is to remove a device safely without clicking the icon to safely remove it. I too no longer see the notification pop-up.
    Of course it may be a bug.

    Do you have quiet hours set? Apparently if so then this can cause the problem.
    Also check: Settings>System>Notifications and Actions, "Show App Notifications" - if off turn on.
    I’ll keep looking for other solutions.
