Safely removing the SD card

When removing the SD card (while Android is running), do NOT just pull it out. I did this a few times and it corrupted the card, requiring a reformat. To remove it politely, go in to System Settings -> Storage and scroll down to "Unmount shared storage". This unmounts the SD card, allowing it to be removed.

When you insert the card back in again, it should automatically be detected and mounted. If not, click "Mound SD card" under Storage to mount it.
