how to stop the external hard drive from turning on and off with the computer
Posted on 2008-10-12
i have an external hard drive Lacie Big disk attached via usb connected to my pc running vista ultimate. when i turn on the computer, the external hard drive turns on as well. is there a way keep it from turning on and off automatically with the computer without "pulling out the power cord"? i
Ideally, would like to be able to manually turn the external drive off and on by pressing the power button on the front of the drive. Or, i would like to be able to manually turn the drive off and on via the desktop with a simple command.
