Explanation (?):

The removable storage service provides a portal for backup utilities to access and maintain archived data to storage media that can be removed, such as tapes. This service is not used natively for devices such as Zips, CDs, DVDs, floppies or other common storage media, however programs that come with the associated devices may use this service, depending on the vendor. Therefore it is recommended to leave this service set to manual, as it will only start if called. And if it is called then you most likely need it. Only set this to disabled if can't fight the urge.
