Go to the Device Manager > Disk Drives > Right click on the drive you want to unplug > Policies Tab

Make sure Optimize for quick removal is checked.

If it is already, you may unplug the drive without worry. If it is not (Optimize for performance is checked instead), check it now. Watch for any activity lights on the drive. If the drive shows no more activity for a minute, you can then unplug it.
