I've never damaged a drive by removing it without first stopping it, but I have discovered that files I thought I had successfully copied to the drive were not actually there. Since then, I always stop the device prior to removing it.

I had one stop working on an XP machine once, and was able to read it on a different machine running Win 7. I copied all of the files to the Win 7 machine, reformatted and reloaded the files. I was then able to access the drive on the XP machine.
