[OT] USB Harddrives under Win 7 Pro 64   [OT]

I have a conundrum that is driving me crazy ... I have a 2GB harddrive in an external caddy that I connect to a number of machines for doing backups but it appears as removeable on some but not others. I would like to be able to "eject" the drive on all machines to save having to shut them down to remove the drive.

I have trawled the web and tried a number of things but nothing helps on two machines the drive remains stubbornly "fixed".

All the machines are running windows 7 pro - the 32bit and 64bit version makes no odds.

It is a modern SATA drive in a USB3 caddy.

I am hoping that someone can cast some light on this.

Regards,
Bob
