Is it better for my hard drives to be spinning all the time or for them to turn off when not in use?
I'd always thought the latter but a friend of mine asserts that starting and stopping a hard drive will shorten its life-span. That it does more harm than spinning all the time.
Anyone know of data or studies on this?
