Set minutes until hard drive spins down
Authored by: Ockham on Oct 02, '06 01:38:48PM

Can anyone confirm whether this setting, or the other Developer tools hint noted, persists across different computers? I.E.- if I change this setting on a portable drive attached to my Desktop and then use this same drive on my laptop, or any other computer, will the spin down time reset to the default for the computer it is attached to?

I know that there are some utilities on the PC and Linux side that allow you to "hard code" the spin down setting to the drive and I am hoping this does the same.

No, it most certainly does not. It is a system wide parameter.
