Hard disk not turning off during idle.. not c:

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
hey guys... i'm having trouble trying to get my server hard disk to turn off when it's inactive... server have three hard disks, one for OS, and two others for storage ( D: and E: ) and it's shared to my home network.. i set my D and E drives to turn off when it's inactive for 90mins, but it never wanted to turn off!!! but the funny thing it will turn off if i set it to 20mins.. i'm trying to find out what is preventing my storage drives from turning off.. nothing is being installed on them, it's plain storage..

any help will be greatly appreciated.. thx thx

Something is probably accessing the drives between 20~90minutes. Let the drives park at 20min, then come back at 90min and see if they have spun back up. If they have, then you just need to figure out what program is accessing them.
