  1. Jeanne, thanks for the great tips about safely unplugging USB devices from computers. I didn’t know that the process of “safely removing” through the software before physically removing the USB device was necessary in order to protect my data and the device itself. Another informative show…looking forward to your next episode.

  2. Unplugging USB devices is done without thinking all the time. Your analogy of comparing improper removal of a USB to removing a bridge before all the people are off was excellent. That is an excellent way to remember why it’s important to do it correctly. Thanks, Jeanne
