Combined Quit & Safely Remove

For a while now I've thought it would be great if the Quit button on the PortableApps menu would also undock the USB key, instead of requiring a couple more clicks, on the Safely Remove Hardware icon, and then on the drive letter - which if there is a few choices can be awkward to work out.

Anyhow, I bumped into some code (while looking for something else) that might be a good starting point if anyone was interested.

It exist

on PAM Mods and in an independent portable app called ejectscript, there is also a tiny cmd app that performs it but I don't remember the name ATM.

It is all in this forum, just need to search a little.

If a packet hits a pocket on a socket on a port,
and the bus is interrupted as a very last resort,
and the address of the memory makes your floppy disk abort,
then the socket packet pocket has an error to report Biggrin

no u dont

it will do it for you.
i use it all the time.
the only problem is that you have to send it a parameter so you cannot use it through the PAM, but is you use some thing like PStart then it can work for ya.

Please search before posting. ~Thanks

I use it

on PStart too, but I don't use any command line option because I want to decide when to eject the script, sometimes you have to wait until a "* portable" finish closing before ejecting, and sometimes you want to close but not eject the drive yet... Blum

I think in the last thread about ejectscript there is a better explanation of this, I requested that auto eject function in the past, and somebody convinced me on the contrary... Wink
