WD My Book Duo 32TB frequent scanning issue

My Book Duo 32TB is connected to a Mac Studio M1 Max running the latest version of Mac OS Ventura. I work a lot with finder, opening, reclassifying, relocating, tagging and organizing files. I notice that My Book Duo keeps making spinning and scanning sounds every 2 minutes at the best, and every 30 seconds at the worse…And everytime it does that, Finder or any file I am working at freezes and becomes irresponsive, until the “scanning” (or whatever it is) process is over (which takes about 20 seconds). It is very annoying. It slows down my work. I would like to know if anybody has any idea of how I can fix this issue?

It sounds like it could be my same issue: My Book Duo goes to sleep after a few seconds .
