DrivePool hangs while HDDs spin up

Question

I have a complicated DrivePool nesting that include my local SSD, CloudDrives, and some USB HDDs. I have always noticed in the past, when accessing a USB HDD directly, that explorer will hang until a cold USB HDD has gone through he power-up and handshake phases, and then response is normal.

I still get the same experience on my DrivePool if my USB HDDs are cold. I'd expect this phenomenon if I were reading/writing a file directly. If DrivePool is pinning metadata, which I assume includes the MFTs, why would this be the case? What am I missing?

I wouldn't know but I highly doubt Drivepool pins MFT data and so, even a simply directory listing would require access to the USB drives.

I would not want that to change either. In my experience, DP is very fast at dealing with changes to the Pool even when made directly to the underlying disk.
