Spinning down External HD when not in use?
I have an external drive with 2 partitions; one for SuperDuper, and one for time machine. I have used AppleScript to automatically mount this External when SuperDuper is scheduled to clone; then automatically dismount the HD when SuperDuper completes the clone. This automation comes in handy being that I don't have to interact with the software at all for daily backups. Now, the problem is that the HD is constantly plugged via my powered USB Hub all day-everyday, so the HD is constantly spinning. Is there any software available that I can use to spin down the drive when it's idle for a while then spin up when SuperDuper mounts it?? Google has yielded no results. ;o/
Is this a good question?
