Hi list

Certainly r5110 allows me to plug in a RAM stick USB drive then use the
windows process to "stop and unplug" it again.
Interestingly. I plugged in a USB HDD and the status icons appear in the
appropriate folders even though in the TortoiseSVN properties USB
Removable drive was not ticked.

Ticked Removable Drive and applied.
Using the Windows process, the drive was "stopped" and could be unplugged.

So I think the answer is that pluggable drives are no longer a problem.
