DP Keeping ALL disks from sleeping.. again...


I have been noticing my drives not spinning down yet again for several months. So I went on the hunt, and again it appears DP is querying all the drives on the system (even those not in the pool) presumably via wmiprvse.exe. As soon as I shut down the DP service it's stops. These are ~4kb hits on all installed drives.

So I opened up my setting.json file and to my surprise it was corrupted. (Full of "NULL") So I shut down the DP service, deleted the file, restarted the DP service, it created a good setting file I then shut the service back down, changed the override to false, saved file. rebooted machine.

I have confirmed the setting "stuck" but DP continues to hit every disk keeping them all awake.


I'm running the latest beta.. Is DP not honoring the setting anymore?
