ONe problem
Authored by: kaltekar on Sep 01, '05 02:40:46PM

I see one big problem with doing this. You are writting to the HDD every five minutes, which means that unless you put your drive to sleep in under five minutes your drives will never spin down to save power. This is can be a real problem on laptops were the HDD is one of the largest power consumers in the machine. Not to mention it causes unneeded wear and tear on the drives mechanics. Just a little something to keep in mind.
