SATA devices are defined as removable devices.  All SATA devices will show up in the "safely remove hardware" wizard because NVIDIA supports the SATA Hot Swap function.  This is not a problem or bug but by design and is expected behavior.  Please note that Windows will NOT allow you to remove a boot drive / system volume within this Windows utility.
