Feature to improve the removable drives applet

Asked by nlspiegel on 2018-01-12

The removable drives applet (by the clock) works counter-intuitively, IMO. When I use it to unmount a flash drive, it vanishes immediately. This would seem to suggest that the drive is unmounted - however it merely indicates that the drive has been told to dismount. In my opinion, the icon should linger until the dismount is complete. I've corrupted several flash drives! They take an indeterminate amount of time to finalize their writes.

Doesn't a popup show to say it's OK to pull the device out?

If not then I suggest you report a bug
