There's an 'eject' button next to it in the file manager, which more or
less does this (it actually does something a bit stronger - it removes
the device entirely, after you click it /dev/sda won't exist any more).
Some apps that commonly handle removable media also let you 'eject' -
Rhythmbox and Shotwell, for example.
