Do I have to eject my USB stick?

Do I have to “Eject” USB Stick?

Ever wonder why your computer warns you about ejecting those USB sticks before you remove them? It’s because computers use something called write caching to improve performance, if you copy something to your drive, it’ll tell you it’s completed the task, but actually its waiting until it has a few other tasks to perform so it can do them all at once. Efficient, ehh? When you press eject, your Laptop finishes anything in its queue to make sure you don’t have any data loss.
