In the tip it says to see Chapter 6 discussion on removable drives for disabling this feature. Been through all chapter 6 and can't find it.

Note from the Author or Editor:
Replace sentence, "See the discussion of removable drives in Chapter 6 for a way to disable this feature" with "To disable this feature, open the device properties for your drive in Device Manager, choose the Policies tab, and select the 'Quick removal' option."
