I am trying to migrate my selfmade NAS from a Raspberry Pi (Raspian) to a TinkerBoard (Debian) because that's faster on USB and has Gigabit Ethernet.

In Raspian I use hdparm.conf to configure spindown_time to set sleep timeout for a USB drive, and that works fine. The new system is on a TinkerBoard with a Debian 9.6 stretch Linux operating system. There is a hdparm package but no init or service script to reload and apply hdparm configuration.

How can I set a timeout for hard disk to go to sleep in Debian, like it is done with hdparm and the spindown_time setting on Raspian?
