Hard drive included in safely remove hardware.

I have a new PC running W7 64bit.
When I click the safely remove hardware button to remove a USB flashdrive, listed as well is the option to remove my hard drive. Is this normal? The shop that built the PC for me says it is because my hard drive is SATA, but it is still a bit disconcerting.

It shows up like that, because your SATA drive supports 'hot-swapping' (or hot-plug) & is incorrectly setup that way for eSATA functionality.

It will do no harm, but you can change it if desired by following the guide in this Microsoft forum thread click here. G

Same here. The shop is correct. If you have a SATA hard drive (which can be installed and unistalled "on the fly") you will be given this option

Thanks to you both. That solves concern that for me.
