In Windows, I can edit the usb properties like in the following picture

So I want to ask how can we edit the removal policy like that in Ubuntu ?

It seems the second link is helpful, so I have to issue this command hdparm -W0K1 /dev/sdb for my usb in sdb ? And sorry for the extra 10.04 tag. –  langtumytho Apr 10 '13 at 13:47
@Rinzwind 10.04 is not off topic exactly. The 'desktop' product is still alive, until some point this month, and the server product is still supported until April 2015. There hasn't been an EOL announcement for 10.04 'desktop' yet though. –  dobey Apr 10 '13 at 14:12
