HDD shuts down randomly

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hello

I just got my Haswell rig set built. This is the 2nd time my HDD (see rig below) shuts down and wakes back up when I run some program in the HDD. My OS is in the SSD.
This started occuring when I just got my new rig built (switched from Bulldozer)
Is this shutting down normal?

It could be your Windows Power Options are causing the HDD to turn itself off when not being used. Go to Control Panel -> Power Options -> Change plan settings -> Change advanced power settings -> Hard disk -> Turn off hard disk after -> Setting and change the value to 0 (Never).
