Hello peeps. I have a quick one for you all. For a little while now I've been getting irritated by my 1TB hard disk constantly powering down when not used for a while, and then having to wait for it to spin back up when its accessed. Its not making my PC freeze or anything, but given that my "home" folder is located on this hard disk, whenever I request access it takes 4-5 seconds before my request is forfilled, as it has powered down the disk while not being used. As you can imagine, even clicking a link on the desktop causes the delay as well, because it is actually on the 1TB disk. So, would I risk loads of wear and tear on the disk if I turned off the shutdown disk option, and forced it to run the whole time the PC is running? Its not the end of the world if I can't do it, but its just bloody annoying going from super fast operations because of my SSD, to literally having to wait for the 1TB hard disk to spin up just to access a personal file. Firefox is the worst for it though, as when I go to download something, the default folder is on the hard disk, and it literally locks it up for 4-5 seconds, and causes mayhem should it be a small file, as I then have to wait for it to come online, then the download ends almost immediately and is scanned... It seems it totally confuses Firefox and it throws a fit in the process! So would it be alright to just make it run nonstop like the SSD? I'm guessing it should be fine, but thought I best check first, just in case! Cheers all.
