Hello Everyone! I have set up my first NC using the below configuration:
Raspberry pi 4
WD Red 1tb 2.5 HDD
On latest version of NCP, and have no additional packages (Besides hd-idle).
I have noticed that the HDD does not spin down on its own while not being in use after a couple of hours. So naturally I googled what was happening to try to fix this issue. I came across this site that said how to fix this issue. With my configuration hdparm and sdparm does not work, but hd-idle will spin down the hdd after X amount of time. The issue now is that it will randomly spin back up a couple minutes later even though it is not in use. The googling continues.
I now find this site. Close to the bottom of the page they explain that they had a similar issue to me, which was caused by udisks. Then they explain how to fix the issue by editing a udisks file. Unfortunately NCP doesn’t use udisks (to my knowledge) , but it does use udisks2, which from my understanding udisks and udisks2 do very similar things.
Now I have had no luck trying to find additional information on how to fix this issue which I am assuming is from udisks2.
Any help/ insight would be greatly appreciated!
