1 When writing files to your usb key, the computer may very often appear to have finished. However, in reality it is "long-fingering" the write process and will complete the writing in its own time. When you "stop" the device you instruct the computer to complete all file writes so that the disk is safe to remove. If you remove a key without stopping it you risk corrupting all files on the key.
