Hi, everyone. I’m running NextCloudPi version 1.25.0 on an Odroid HC-2, installed on a MicroSD card. I have a WD120EMFZ 12TB drive installed, pulled from a new external HDD.
The problem I’m having is very frequent hard drive spindowns/spinups. It does so around 200 times per day, confirmed by SMART tests. This results in around 6000 start/stop cycles per month. Considering that this drive is only rated for 300,000 start/stop cycles, it will exceed its rating in a little over 4 years.
Does anyone know why the frequent HDD start/stop cycles? I do not use the Nextcloud desktop sync client, so it’s not that. Is there any way to access the power settings in Nextcloudpi? I cannot even find a terminal in the version I’m using.
Any suggestions appreciated. I really do not want to replace an expensive hard drive due to early failure. Thanks!
