You have AHCI enabled. AHCI enables hot swap therefore windows will make it removable. it is normal.

 

to remove it from the safely remove hardware and media

 

go to Command Prompt and past this

reg.exe add "HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\msahci\Controller0\Channel0" /f /v TreatAsInternalPort /t REG_DWORD /d 0x00000001

 

you will need to change the Controller number and channel for example your Crontroller is on 1 you change "Controller0" to "Controller1"

No, you don't have to turn off your computer to hot swap. all you do it head over to the bottom safely remove media devices and eject it. then u can take out the ssd.
