Avoid Western Digital external drives' built-in spin down
Authored by: SOX on Nov 19, '09 07:02:39PM

the above plist seems to be out of date. however this works:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple Computer//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN"
"http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">;
<plist version="1.0">
<dict>
<key>Label</key>
<string>com.xaren.touchApollo</string>
<key>ProgramArguments</key>
<array>
<string>touch</string>
<string>/Volumes/Crashplan/.touch</string>
</array>
<key>RunAtLoad</key>
<true/>
<key>StartInterval</key>
<integer>60</integer>
</dict>
</plist>

to use this copy the above to /Library/LauchAgents with some name like com.xaren.touchApollo.plist

then run
launchctl load /Library/LauchAgents/com.xaren.touchApollo.plist

to run it.
