Ok so I needed to transfer larger files onto my 32gb external hard drive so I formatted it to NTFS, and I read that the drawback of formatting to NTFS is..."When you have your USB stick set up in this mode, you absolutely must use the "Safely Remove Hardware" method before disconnecting the stick from the computer and you absolutely CANNOT forget to do this. If you do, the data is sure to get corrupted in short order." Its from http://www.pcmech.com/article/fat32-vs-ntfs-on-usb-stick-how-to/. I usually forget to safely remove it and just yank it out. Also at my high school, the computers there will NOT allow me to safely remove the USB for reasons I do not know.. So I was wondering if I HAVE to safely remove it so I don't corrupt my files, so I can know whether or not I should stick it in the school's computers.
