I need some help! I turned off my OWC Mercury Elite without first dragging the icon to the trash. Up popped an alert informing that files might have been damaged.

My question... will my photographic images be damaged to some extent because of not dragging the icon to the trash first.

If someone can help with more knowledge than I it would certainly be appreciated.

Thanks!!! Paul Bonnichsen
