How long before drive spin-down?
« on: August 25, 2012, 04:28:13 pm »
I have a 8 drive pool created in expert mode (6 DRU - 2 PPU) and I was wondering how long an interval before drives spin down for energy saving?

That's up for you to setup through your OS and based on your needs.

So, FlexRAID doesn't spin down drives, the OS does. FlexRAID spins up the drive it needs. This info would be great in the Wiki for us pooling dummies  :P
