External USB drive enclosure with spindown timeout?
Posted on 2006-04-05
Is anyone aware of any external USB drive enclosures that spindown the drive after a period of non-use? Since they have their own controller interface, none of these are controlled by Windows drive time-out value; but there's no reason they can't have their own spindown logic. I've only got a few of the enclosures -- the Penguins are my favorite; but none of the ones I have spin down. I've also sent several e-mail to enclosure makes; but have had only a couple of responses -- and they were negative.
There have been questions in this regard before -- and none were identified. Just thought I'd see if there's been any progress.
