HDD not spinning up from sleep

Post by Eugen1968 »

I have a usb sata enclosure HDD connected to my router running Gargoyle 1.5.8.

I can spin down the drive using hd-idle. However, when I try and list a directory, it just lists an empty directory and windows says it has disconnected.

How do I get Gargoyle to wait for the drive to spin up?

Usb hard drive must have sleep-spin down time by itself.If so when it sleeps by itself , is it spining up normally on file read or write?
