External Hard Drives goes into auto-sleep mode after just a few minutes.
I’m a laptop user myself, using an attached external hard drive which I’m constantly reading/writing data to/from + backups. I’ve had it with workflow disruptions because the external drive went to sleep, and I have to wait again and again for an unknown amount of time until it spins up.
If you’ve experienced it then you know it’s annoying, and often there’s no setting to adjust this so I’m making a new app to address this issue. It’s under development, testing and hopefully coming soon.
