Waking Sleeping Disks
« on: July 18, 2016, 03:50:07 am »
I added an 8 Bay JBOD tower to my setup. All it contains are movies and the only folders on there are movie folders.

Whenever sonarr downloads a TV show into the sonarr/TV directory all my pool disks are woken up including the 8 bay JBOD tower that only has movies.

How can I avoid this behavior? Unfortunately RAID-F has no multiple pool capabilities. If it did that would likely be a solution. But is there anything else I can do?

It is most likely that the program is scanning the disk's directory structure before downloading. You might want to point that program to a staging folder whether inside or outside of the pool.

In addition, on some computers, an external indicator tells the user that the system is merely sleeping
