Physical button for "safely eject removable media" in Windows
Posted on 2013-01-30
Is there a product out there that can be a PHYSICAL button that performs the "safely eject removable media" function in Windows?
We have a server which uses external hard drives for backups. An employee rotates the hard disk every morning.
The employee doesn't have the rights, nor the knowledge, to actually remote to the server and safely eject the hard drive properly. So... they've just been yanking it. This has caused problems with the disks getting corrupted etc. and we need a solution.
It would be great if the employee could push some kind of a physical "eject" button sitting ontop or near the server, wait for a light to turn green, and THEN disconnect the hard drive, without having to actually remote into the server.
Does such a product exist?
