    Safe removal of CADDY hard drive

    I use a 1TB 3.5in hdd in a removable enclosure. As this is a SATA device Windows 8 sees it as an internal drive. I would like it to be treated as a removable drive and force "Safe Removal" the same as a USB drive would be.

    Can anyone point me in the right direction to changing how Windows sees it?
