Help turning off HD

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I have a SSD as my main boot drive with windows. I have two extra mechanical drives for storage that I don't use all the time. I went through the SSD optimization thread and it said to set the hard disk off function in power management to 0, guessing that's off. Now I would like my storage drives to turn off after a few minutes since they are just for pictures and videos. Is there anyway to do it so my hard disk are not constantly on? Is it safe to turn this setting back on with a SSD in place as my main drive?
