    What are the valid values for Safely Remove reg entry

    I've seen in a few forum posts that you can change the value of this registry entry:


    to various values to add or remove items that will trigger the Safely Remove Hardware icon from the Systray of the Taskbar. The default value is

    REG_DWORD 0x1f

    Does anyone know what the valid values are and what they control.

    For instance, setting it to 27 (0x1b) remove the sound volume control icon.

    For hiding 'Safely Remove Devices' value changes to 0x0000001d (29)
    (this came about after running the batch file I posted about earlier: Safely Remove hardware icon in taskbar removal!?)
