I have an external hard drive and each time I plug it in, I can't disconnect it without turning off the PC. I believe that the Norton Protected Recycle Bin is accessing the drive and it wont allow me to stop using the plug and play device, so my only safe option is to turn off the machine.

I believe that if I somehow tell Norton to not protect my external drives recycle bin, then I will be able to plug and unplug the disk anytime, like I do with thumb drives or photo camera memories.

How can I disable specific drives from having their recycle bin protected by Norton?

The version I have is the Norton Systemworks 2003, that comes with Norton Utilities and Norton Cleansweep.
