Make HDD sleep or hibernate

Post by przemko »

Hello, I have Toshiba HDD 3TB, 7200RPM and it works 24/7 with my Rpi4 NAS server. It's possible to make that drive sleep or hibernate at night to cool a little because it's very hot all day and I'm afraid it will crash fast.

Regards,

Well, it will spin down the drive on inactivity after the time you have defined. But this will work only, if your drive is supporting it. Sometimes it was helpful to connect the HDD to a Windows computer and updated HDD firmware using vendor tool (if available). There are cases where such vendor tool offering an option to set HDD spin down times as well.

So when I set to 30 min. it will slow down my HDD and it will be sleeping until I run Emby or copy file to my nextclud server?

The system will wake up the HDD once needed. But as I said above, your HDD needs to support this feature. There is as well a note on drive manager if you are going to set the value.
