Hub HDD File Transfer

I turn off my hub but I can still transfer files from my laptop to my hub via my network.

Don’t Understand

Is the hubs HDD ever off?

Press and Hold the Red Power button on the Remote for 5 Seconds

to completely Shutdown the WDTV Live Hub (and it’s HDD)

Pressing the Red Power button for a _ second _ is putting it into ‘Standby’ mode ie. HDD still active

To completely Shutdown you need to press and HOLD the power button for about 5 seconds!

This will shutdown the HUB completely.

I suspect that you are just pressing the power button for a short time and this just puts the unit into standby.
