No spin down external HDD Seagate 4TB

    • No spin down external HDD Seagate 4TB


      I have exactly the same probleme as in this post.…ows-MacOS-Ubuntu-FritzOS/

      Problem = external USB HDD does not spin down.
      It runs with OMV4 full power all the time.
      (with Windows it goes automatic into sleepmode)

      I have an old Laptop, which i want to use as a Fileserver.
      For this I bought 2 external Seagate 4 TB HDDs

      One as Fileserver-drive
      The other makes a daily backup of the Fileserver-drive.

      After some hours of research, I dont think there is any solution...
      But... are there external hard disks where the spin down works?
      You have any recommendation for me, which external HDD I should buy?

      I have an esata Port on the Laptop.
      Does esata and spin down work in OMV4?

      If yes:
      I buy a esata Case + a HDD which works as filserver-drive.
      And for the Backup an external HDD with spin down support.
      This way i get some more speed. (Laptop has only USB2)
      As an example a case like this:…uery=externe%20festplatte

      Thank you for your Time and recommendations
