This applies to storage solutions (NAS/SAN).
Would you rather leave your HDDs spinning all the time or have them shut off during idle time? I have a NAS on the network but I notice it spins up the drives when a new device turns on and goes to log into the NAS though not accessing any files. I am wondering if I should just have the drives spin 24/7 instead of turning on and off, say 10 times a day.
(a few WD Red 4TB if anyone is wondering)
