Hi all,

I'm new to the Mac world. Just wanted to know how to proceed to safely remove a pen drive in Mac OSX. It doesn't seem to be documented anywhere or may be I'm looking in the wrong direction.
Thanks for your help!.


regards,
Ali

Several ways to do it:

1. Drag the Pen drive to the Trash.

2. Right click on the drive and select "eject".

3. Select the pen drive icon (ie a single left click) and press the eject button on the keyboard.
