eSata drive goes to sleep
I have Windows 7 x64 and have a hard drive attached to an eSata port on my PC.
When I have not been using my PC for a few minutes the attached drive seems to go to sleep, and if I copy large folder (>20Gig) from my main (C) hard drive to my eSata drive the speed starts okay then slows to virtually nothing after 20 minutes.
If I try to access the drive in explorer it takes a few seconds after I click on the drive to show the contents, this does not happen if I click on my C: drive.
I have my Power settings set to High Performance and my Hard Drive "Sleep" settings set to Never.
How do I keep my attached eSata drive from going to sleep (or whatever the problem is)
