First of all, long term Ubuntu MATE user here and I love it, good job devs!
I’m currently running Ubuntu MATE 16.04 and for about as long as I’ve been running 16.04 I find it really frustrating how there is no pop up notification informing me when it is safe to remove a USB storage device. Quite often I will transfer large files to NTFS formatted external media, wait until the progress bar completes, eject the drive and give it a sec before removing only to find that the file had not finished fully transferring and I now have a completely corrupted drive! If the device has an activity light it’s not a problem, but it’s when a device has no activity light it becomes a real issue.
Is there a way to work around this that doesn’t involve waiting an extra 10 mins after the progress bar completes in the hope that all data transfer has completed? I really think this is an important issue that needs to be addressed.
