[Clug-tech] Procedure for removing USB drives

"Just remove it" seems to be the proper method, but a few times now, I've 
copied files to a USB key, waited for the operation to complete, pulled out 
the USB key, and put it into another computer, only to find the files aren't 

Since inserting the USB key is controlled by an auto-mount function, will 
running "sync" before removing the key force the write to the key? Is there a 
better way to do it? Thanks.
