Optimize for quick removal greyed out? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm trying to change a HDD from being a Basic HDD to a removable HDD, the HDD (150 GB) is within a Mecer HD316SSC External Kit and connected by the Kit's eSATA port. When I select the Policies tab within the Device Properties the "Optimize for quick removal" is greyed out and I have absolutly no idea how to be able to access it. This drive is going to be used for a rotational off-site backup so I need this to work as a "Removable Drive".

    Any help will be grateful.

  • Can't you just use the remove disk option from the storage tab on the console? Or are you trying to physically remove the drive from the external enclosure?

  • Unfortunatly not it does not allow me to remove the disk from the storage tab, that's why I'm trying to change it to "Optimize for quick removal". And no I'm not trying to remove it physically from the enclosure.
