Many users of Macrium reflect back up their data to usb-hdd.
After backup you have to manually click "Safely remove hardware" in Windows.
It would be nice if this "safely remove" would be done by Macrium reflect.
This feature could be a selection feature.
Note: With iperius backup this is possible.

You could script it.

If you have Macrium create a PowerShell script, something like the following after the backup runs ought to get the job done.

$vol = get-wmiobject -Class Win32_Volume | where{$_.Name -eq 'F:\'} 
$vol.DriveLetter = $null 
$vol.Put() 
$vol.Dismount($false, $false)


Don't know if that's any help to you or not.
Or there's always the method on this page (I know, lazy man's approach).

Thank You for the suggestion with "scripting"!
I am not familiar with "powershell" scripting.
My system is a Windows Server 2019.
I will not use the other method because it is described for Windows 10.
Maybe the Macrium team will find a way to integrate this feature soon.
Thank you and best regards! Stephan Dicke

It might be described for windows 10, but it's valid for all versions back to Windows 2000.

Beards, PowerShell didn’t arrive until Windows Vista / Server 2008, and initially it was an optional installation, so there’s no way that script snippet would be valid back to Windows 2000.

The thing on the linked page is valid back to 2K though, since that describes setting Windows to optimise USB drives for quick removal.

This is an excellent idea, and I would use it if it was included in Macrium Reflect.   
Another person suggested a 'script'...however while that is a valid solution this kind of feature is common to many people and hopefully is can be a 'standard' function in the backup definition.
