My MyBook shows a slight disk activity regularly from time to time even if not accessed at all. Any idea which kind of processes that can access the disk without any user activity?
I have installed the following:
- LDSO_RUNPATH enabled firmware v4.1.1
- Update samba (blue ring)
- Web server
- Updated Lighttpd using Optware
The reason I ask is that I want to install spin-down mechanisms for my MyBook, but another user alllexx commented this about spin-down:
Imagine some user unknowingly installs something that regularly writes some loge entries to some place other then a ram disk. If the period of writing those entries is neither too big nor too small, drive(s) will probably spin down and then spin up again quite often, which is REALLY BAD and will probably cause a hardware failure pretty soon.
Which seems to be my case…
