An external hard disk sold as “INTENSO USB 3.0 4TB M/CNTR DSKTP HDD PK1” with the model number given by
hdparm -I as
ST4000DM000-1F2168 (so it's a Seagate Technology drive in the casing) just flat out ignores my power saving options set by
root@igloo: hdparm -S 244 /dev/sdb /dev/sdb: setting standby to 244 (2 hours)
=> it still keeps spinning down after just 10 minutes. I absolutely verified that
/dev/sdb is the right disk.
A clean solution to make the disk follow the power saving option is much preferred. If this is not possible what would be the best workaround?
