Unmounted drive keeps spinning up

Recommended Posts

Hi guys I have a question


I have recently moved my HDD to my optical bay using a caddy, and I am using an SSD to boot up


I usually eject the HDD from Finder and set the disk sleep to 1 using pmset. However, I've noticed (using SpindownHD) that even when unmounted, the HDD will spin up randomly every 4-5 minutes and then go to sleep again... this is audible, and actually very annoying.


Do you have any ideas why this is happening and how to solve it?
