According to Microsoft, its new Windows 10 update is set for a new policy regarding the removal of external storage.
They say that "Windows defines two main policies, rapid elimination and better performance, which control how the system interacts with external storage devices such as USB memory drives or external drives compatible with Thunderbolt. From Windows 10 version 1809, the policy Default is a quick removal. "
The company explains: "This policy manages storage operations in a way that keeps the device ready to be removed at any time. You can remove the device without using the hardware security process. However, to do this, Windows can not store caching disk write operations. "

This is just the case, they warn, if the storage device is not actively copying any file.
