POwer-saving mode or not for external HDD ?

Recommended Posts

I am using Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex 3TB external HDD in one of the pools. The HDD goes power-saving mode by defaut if the drive is inactive in 15 minutes.


The pool is for storing bluray movies and the only time thatthe pool is used is when I copy the movie into the pool and when I watch movie.


I think that this power-saving mode is good for the drive since there is not much activity anyway for the drive. However I am not sure whether this setting will impact DB or not.


Can anyone give me answer on this? If DB is not impacted by this setting I will leave the default setting on.


THank you in advance!
