USB Safely Remove 6.1 released!

Aug 12th, 2018

USB Safely Remove 6.1 is available to download. This version contains small usability improvements and bug fix. Since there were no updates for a long time, this version will be free for everyone who has a paid license eligible for the previous version 6.0. Download now or read more below.


  • Sound notification is now played after the device stop in Windows 10 (as the native safe removal does)
  • Improved device context menu for better usability
  • Language strings improvements
  • “Unable to stop\return” dialogs now display button on the TaskBar (you can now switch to it with Alt+Tab)

Bug fixes

  • The program stopped to display buttons on the TaskBar after closing of its main window
  • Some devices may disappear forever after their stop
  • Assistant service was not installed when you reinstall the program to a folder different from the previous installation
  • It was impossible to eject card reader’s card without a drive letter assigned (for example when there’s only a folder mount point)
  • DPC latency was constantly spiking when the program is running (it could prevent audio\video rendering software normal work)
  • A senseless message about inability to restore some drive letters could be displayed on the program uninstall
  • The “Unable to return device” dialog may not show in some cases thus a user was unable to know what application prevented to return a device

    Thank you for this free (as in “free lunch” not “free software”) update. My licence for version 5.x expired on April 12, 2018, and I confirm that this update worked as promised. I appreciate. :-)

    I received an email for update. I downloaded the update and now I get a message that I have a 30 day trial. Whats up?

      The newsletter is for all customers even for those whose license keys expired. Your license key upgrade period has ended in June 2012. Therefore you can either downgrade to the latest version eligible for your key: 5.1, get it here or consider purchasing the renewal, see renewal prices here

    Expected to be pleased with the update inasmuch as I appreciate very much USB Safely Remove. However, the update I downloaded removed the program and stalled on the update.

    Thus, I no longer have Safely Remove!

    Brilliant. Installed with no issues at all on a Win 7 OS and replaced the earlier version
    I did “Exit” from the USB Safely Remove programme before doing this – not sure if necessary, but as a precaution.
    Tnx for your good work Igor.

    После установки обновления появилась бяка. Если устройств для остановки нет, в трее появляется виндовый значок для извлечения флешек. Заходим в настройки программы, убираем галку “Спрятать иконку, когда нет устройств для установки”, жмем “Применить”, ставим галку, жмем “Применить”. Виндовый значок пропал. Ребутим комп, значок снова есть. Откатился до предыдущей версии – проблем со значками нет. Глюк обновления?

      Есть такая ошибка. Разработчики уже исправили. Скоро выложат новую версию с исправлением.
