I have my Drobo connected to my Imac via FW800. I have all my movies and mp3’s for my AppleTV’s on the Drobo.
This configuration works great however If I have not used the drobo in a while i believe the drives spin down becuase when i try to play a movie/song in itunes or appletv(which streams from itunes) it takes a second to start up and you can hear the drobo spinning back up.
I search but didnt find any hits on this except for one recommendation for a Drobo pro that my drobo dashboard software didnt have.
I want to prevent the drives from ever spinning down. Is there a plist I can edit somewhere? Or a setting in the drobo dashboard i dont see?
Drobo = 4 1tb WD’s
Drobo Dashboard = 1.6.7
Drobo Firmware = 1.3.5
Thanks in advance.
