Just started testing NextCloudPi (latest) running on an ODroid HC2 with a WD Red hard disk. I am loving NCP so far, but I’ve noticed the drive spins down and spins up quite regularly even when no one is accessing it. So I’m wondering:
- Is this potentially bad for the drive? Anecdotally I’ve seen suggestions it could reduce the drive’s lifetime.
- Would you recommend either A) keeping the disk spinning 24/7, or B) disabling whatever event (cron job?) is causing the spin ups?
If anyone has recommendations on approach A or B I’d appreciate it!
