HDD spindown



Good morning


This is not necessarily a question related to DrivePool itself, but in an attempt to reduce power consumption of my NAS running Server2012E, I tried to enable HDD spin down


To no effect I'm afraid:

- first I could not find the options in the control panel, as they are by default 'hidden'

- even after 'unhiding' them and changing the various options, the spindown does not seem to happen


As anyone been able to successufully use HDD spindown ?

Are these drives in the pool? If so, you may want to change the frequency in which the drives are balanced (I'd recommend "immeidately", but "no more often than every 2-3 hours".


Also, Scanner may be able to help with that.

And there is a thread about that here:
