Hi, I have attached an external HDD in a caddy via USB3 to my MyCloud NAS. I know the NAS will “sleep” when not in use. Is there any way to set the externally attached USB3 drive to sleep when not being accessed ? I don’t want it powered up all the time. Would a proper portable WD USB3 drive be better then a HDD in a generic caddy ?
Please advise so I can save power and not have the drive spinning up all the time. Thanks in advance.
