    Removing SD Camera Card from USB socket on Computer Case


    Is this safe to do without first shutting down the computer?

    I'm referring to a card which has already been closed (unmounted) before withdrawall.

    If you have accomplished the Safely Remove of the card just go ahead and pull it out, that's the way the feature was designed. Works for USB drives of various types also. The main idea of the feature is to assure Windows or any program using the devices have finished writing to them, prevent data loss.

    The "Safely Remove" appears at the bottom right of the screen (as an Anouncement) only after the card is closed. From that I assume that Windows is implying that to remove it before that announcement could cause problems, but after is OK. So no need to shutdown the comp.
