Default HD showing on Safely Remove Hardware Tray

Im not really minding this matter since it doesnt affect anything on my performace. But is it normal that I am seeing my hardisk (SATA) on the Safely Remove Hardware Tray? When I click the Safely Remove Hardware Icon it displays my hard disk drive but I do not click Stop cause something might happen.

Just wondering if its ok or did I installed something which is not supposed to be there?

This happened to me a while ago. No one really answered my question to this, but all I did was reformat.

My SATA drive is the same way, although I cannot answer the question. The built in card reader in my chassis that connects to a header on the Mobo comes up there to... I acciedentally stopped the card reader one time, and it never came back until a re-format, so I wouldn't try to 'stop' your HDD... lol.

SATA is a swappable interface therefore it is a removable device.

Yes, I have all three of my SATA drives recognised as 'removable devices' as well. Only just noticed it after you posted this thread.
