I’ve got my OS installed on a 120 GB SSD which then has a limited but usable amount of storage space. All my other data is on a 1 TB hard drive that’s quite noisy when mounted, so in Disks/Drive Settings I’ve set the hard drive to go into standby/spin down after 5 minutes of non-use. This works well for me as I don’t need to access the hard drive much and it gives me a virtually silent PC.
My problem is that whenever I mount a USB stick or memory card it wakes up the hard drive.
Anyone got any ideas why this might be or how to stop it happening?
