USBEject is a small Windows application whose purpose is to help you safely remove your USB flash drives from your computer. This comes in handy especially for those who are too lazy to enable a safe removal of the connected device each time they unplug the target device.

This is a portable utility. You can store it on USB flash drives or other portable devices to have it with you all the time. In addition, you may run it without administrative privileges.

Gaining access to its features requires only opening the executable file because there’s no setup included in the process. It does not write entries to your Windows registry and leave other configuration files on the target PC. It actually saves the settings data on the storage device.

USBEject reveals a simple and intuitive interface that has to offer only a few configuration settings. You can also appeal to the built-in help manual in case you want to find out more details about the dedicated parameters.

The application is able to automatically detect all devices connected to your computer. It works with USB flash drives (flash drive, flash memory, pen drive), USB hard disks, as well as FireWire hard disks.

What’s more, it detects the type of device, shows its name and drive letter, as well as displays data about the space with the aid of a pie chart. You can access the files stored on the target drive by double-clicking on the pie chart.

Other important options worth being mentioned enable you to execute a safe removal of your USB device by double-clicking on the target drive from the list and get detailed information about each flash drive (total, used, and free space) by hovering the mouse cursor over the pie chart.

A few configuration settings are hidden under the hood for helping you disable the popup notification used for safely removing hardware, run the tool at Windows startup, and show size of the drive or name of the brand in the main window.

Tests have shown that USBEject carries out a task quickly and without errors. It remains light on system resources so the overall performance of the PC is not burdened.

The bottom line is that USBEject provides a straightforward approach for enabling safe removal options for USB flash drives, and can be configured by rookies and professionals alike.
