Hi peeps, not sure if I’m misunderstanding how hdparm is supposed to work or if this is a bug.
I got an old laptop hard disk plugged into a hd enclosure, which is plugged into my rpi2b via usb.
When I do “hdparm -C /dev/sda” the result is always “standby” even when the drive is clearly in use.
The standby does seem to work properly because I can hear the drive go completely silent after several minutes of non use, and I can hear it power up when I try to access it. It’s just the hdparm -C command which doesn’t seem to work. Not super important, but I’d still like to understand why it’s nor working if possible. Any ideas?
