Hiding the "Safely Remove Hardware" for specific Ext HD

#1

So i have a WD external drive hooked up to my computer for essentially a backup drive. Is there a way to make it not show up for the “Safely Remove Hardware” icon in the task bar? I know how to hide the notifier completely but i still want it to show up for flash drives and other external drives i plug. But since this WD drive is ALWAYS going to be attached, i’d rather hide that option for it just for the sole purpose of not accidentally “ejecting” that drive instead of the one i meant. Is this doable? thanks

I don’t see any real way to do that what your asking without causing some problem for other attached device but here is a link that might help answer your question.
