Stop USB key in SuSE 9.3 w/KDE 3.4


I'm often worried about data loss by not stopping my Cruzer micro USB key before removing it. How do I do this? Thanks for the help!

You won't have any data loss unless you remove the drive while SUSE is writing to it / deleting from it. Otherwise you can pull it out without any problems. To be double safe you could unmount the drive before removing it. Right clicking on the key's icon in My Computer should give you an unmount option.
