Save and reload disk control settings

Question

Hey,

 

I have just found out that if powering off my system or removing my HDDs all "disk control" settings (AAM, APM and standby timer) get resetted.

This is bad, because the defult load/unload cycle is just a few seconds with no standby, so this will wear out the HDD quite fast.

 

Is it possible to implement a feature, which would reload the disk control settings (at the start of the Scanner service or when a new HDD is detected) for HDDs which are not able to save the disk control settings?

Because there is no program which could reload the settings (in Windows at least) , this could be a unique selling point for the scanner :)

 

 

Regards,

Unfortunately, the Disk Control settings are controlled by your disks firmware. 

 

It may be that power cycling them is resetting the settings, or just not displaying the active settings.

 

This is dependant on the drive and the controller you're using.

 

What drive(s) and controller(s) are you using specifically?
