yo guys,
so I finally installed a ssd on my system,
the OS is already installed on my ssd, so when i dont go to my other drives, it looks like that my hhd is going to sleep!
because everytime imma trying to open a drive from my hhd, "after a short time that i didnt use..." i hear a noise and i find out that its going to wake up...
so is there any solution that i keep my hhd awake? for all moments i mean
Thanks

You could play a video from the HDD or similar, to prevent getting it to sleep mode though.
Isnt music a better way to use the drive rather than having a video take up more cpu power? I reccomend listening to abba, queen or beatles, new music is trash.
Or not use the drive for a different purpose when its not being actively used and why do you want the hard drive to not sleep anyways?

As already mentioned, I'd start with changing stuff in the Windows power profile. Either set it to permanetly on or put a longer time on it. I got most on my drives set to 20 mins, that is usually long enough for me to know if I keep accessing it or not.
