We are glad to announce the new release of USB Safely Remove 6.2! This version has two new interesting features: device disabling (permanent safe removal) and ability to return devices back without reboot of other devices. Besides there are bug fix and some minor improvements.
With this feature you can disable or deactivate a device. This is the same as safe removal but the device stays disabled after the OS restart and even if you reconnect it or its USB hub. This option is very convenient if you wish to stay device connected physically to the computer but don’t need it to be active avoiding it to consume power (works if the option “Power off the device after device stopping” enabled) and being accessed by malicious software.
Return device back without restart of other devices
When you return devices back the previous versions actually reboot the USB hub where this device is connected to. When you have other devices connected to this hub they were reboot as well. It might be not convenient especially if you have wifi or LTE modem among the neighbor devices. The new version uses a different way of device stopping that allows to reactivate the device without affecting the neighbor devices. If for some reason you need to revert back to the old way of device stopping\returning you can use this option:
Device error displaying
- Better displaying of technical information
- Command line: “return” and “forcedreturn” commands returns separated error code if they are called on an active device
- Various improvements in language files (Italian, Russian etc)
- In some cases the native safely remove hardware icon may not be hidden
- Duplicate autorun process could be run on OS startup
Just download and install the required installer over the previous version. You do not need to uninstall the previous version. If your upgrade subscription is over feel free to extend it.
