    It has no icon in my systray to click for removal, so am not sure how to safely remove the drive. I've read just pulling it out is a no-no and since there's no documentation, I don't know how to proceed. Thank you.

    Edited: I do have a generic Safely Remove Hardware. Is it ok to use that?

    Yes, as long as you select the correct device (drive).

    Also see Create a Shortcut or Hotkey for the Safely Remove Hardware Dialog.

    Also, in Windows Explorer, if you right-click on the removable drive, you should see an Eject selection which, I think, is the equivalent of doing it with the hardware removal thingie.
