I have two 3TB drives connected to my SMP, a Toshiba Canvio 3TB External Drive USB 3.0 in the rear port and a Seagate Backup plus 3TB External USB 3.0 in the front port, All work fine when I connected them and ran the compile and I could access both drives and all was right in the world! Then then morning I turned on my SMP and only the Seagate (Front port) drive was showing up. I did notice that the Toshiba drive didn’t have a light on and I can only assume that when the SMP is turned off it goes to sleep and at some point it turns off (or in a deep sleep) The Seagate light is always on (front port) and I assume is in standby mode. The only way to get the Toshiba drive back is to select the “eject the drive” but it ejects both drives and power the SMP down then turn it back on and let it compile (AGAIN) then I see both.
My question is, how do I get the Toshiba drive to go into standby and NOT power down?
