Don't concern yourself with it... newer SATA drives will do this. If you attempt to remove the hard drive, it won't allow you to do it anyway.

SATA has hot-plug capability in the spec, but few drives out there are actually hot-pluggable. Hot-plug drives are usually reserved for servers with RAID capability.
