Spin Down

I am looking for a way to stop spin down of my 2nd gen Drobo. I edit files directly on my Drobo and the 10 to 20 second spin up when I access a file that has not been used for 15 minutes is frustrating. It brings everything to a standstill till the spin up is finished. Running Vista x64.

It would sure be nice to be able to control spin down from the dashboard like the Drobo Pro…


There is a drobo share addon to stop spindown.

Take a look at the thread above - http://www.drobospace.com/forums/showthread.php?tid=447. There is some “HDrive Awake” program mentioned.
