Power and Detection of HDD

  1. Hi!

    I set my backup server the other day, it works like this.

    Using a Batch File it copies all the folders to be backuped from my file server onto 2 seperate 160 Gig HDD's in removable Racks.

    BUT!

    I need a way to switch the hdd's on and off.
    The problem I am having is when I turn the key on the rack itself the hdd doesnt really switch off. So I need to make this hot-swappable or something like this.

    I dont know if this is possible, any advice...?

    Did the work around continue to work?
    Why did you need to stop their spinning?
