SBS 2008 Backup - USB External HDD

I think that It is usually regarded as good practice to "eject" external USB drives before physically disconnecting them. However when using a USB external drive for backing up SBS 2008 using the "native" backup system no drive letter is assigned to the drive and I cannot find any way of "ejecting" the drive. In this situation is it OK just to physically disconnect it just be removing the USB cable ?

The internal backup tool of SBS 2008 doesn't require you to use "Safely Eject". You can just remove the disk.
