Hello everyone. I hope you can help with or at least explain why, when running UltiMaker Cura 5.4.0 on my Windows 11 computer, it will not eject the media drive? I have to go to File Explorer and eject it from there. It's not a great deal of trouble but I'm more curious as to reason behind this. It works fine on my Windows 10 computer.


Thanks for any help you can provide.

    Don't worry about it. These days Windows automatically mounts flash drives and memory cards in a way where you can just unplug them without loss... as long as you're not currently writing a file, but then only that file will be corrupted.


    My best guestimate as to answer? I don't know if a program needs administrative privileges to eject drives, but Windows 11 clamps down on the elevated privileges thing a bit and makes the whole process a bit more involved in an effort to protect idiots from themselves. (Not saying you're an idiot, but there's enough out there)
