I've searched for an answer, but just can't seem to find the solution.
My secondary HD, used for storage and backup, turns off at after about 5 minutes. This is a 1 TB drive used for storing all of my videos, music and photos. The problem is that I access this drive quite often; edit a photo or video, play music, etc.
Each time I to access a file, I have this delay, where I must wait for what seems like the system to mount the drive and allow access. The delay is about 7 seconds, but it's driving me nuts!
I've tried adjusting power management without success. Any ideas?
