I have exactly the same probleme as in this post.
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?
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:
Thank you for your Time and recommendations
