Brutal increase of my USB disk start-stop count

Post by x125 »

Hello,
I have external HDD connected to my RPi2 with DietPi.

In a quiet moment i heard sound of HDD spinning start and end. So I checked S.M.A.R.T. values. And noted Start_Stop_Count. Next day i re-check this count and was terrified. It got 1159 cycles in 1091 minutes from the previous checks.

So it means start-stop event each single minute!

Idle Spindown is set to 10 minutes in dietpi-drive_manager

What could be suspect of this behavior?

Here is some info about my system and running on my system.
