Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free.

Why does Nautilus automatically remount a USB Drive when I clicked "Safely Remove Drive"? It powers it down nice, then just when I'm about to unplug it, it reactivates it and remounts it! OOPS! Now I just unplugged it while it was powering on.. Smooth. Is there a way to turn this off? I already activated "Never prompt or start programs on media insertion", and it still does it.

As it removed it, the chance of data loss is low (all data has been written). However you may have another concern apart from that. –  Portablejim Dec 16 '11 at 0:14
