Stopping a hard disk as removable drive under Win98SE
Posted on 2002-05-29
I have a secondary hard disk on my system which I mounted in a removable tray/caddy.
Currently I can choose whether to power it on or not before booting.
I would like to be able to stop it and power it down and restart it without restarting windows. (Rather like my win2k laptop can stop and start devices) (Ideally even changing to another tray with a different hard disk).
I checked the 'Removable' box on the drive (Ctrl-Panel/System/Hard-disk/Settings) but if I power it off (when it is not busy) my system siezes up. So it seems I need to do something else.
(The primary and secondary HDDs are on seperate channels of a Promise Ultra100 controller so they look like SCSI disks.)
