Hard Drive Spin Down

#1

First of all, thank you for making this thing available.
My A95X is being delivered tomorrow and have a quick question.
In the v2FF version does the rom have the hard drive spin down option like android TV has with Nvidia Shield etc so it spins down the hard drive after a set idle time?

Thanks!

No, I don't think. The box cannot have a sata hard drive inserted, only USB hdd. So, there's no point in having an option for spin speed.

Thanks for the quick answer.
I require my hard drives to turn off at night due to the noise (they are very close to me, the spinning is very distracting when trying to sleep)
Currently use a Raspberry pi with Kodi powered by my TV usb ports for this reason so it all turns off when I turn my TV off (although it's sloooow)

Do hard drives turn off when you power down the box from the remote by any chance?

Its not a big deal though,easy enough to get around.

Thank you again for the ridiculously quick answer. ;)

I stopped the scrub early and have the same problem. Hard drive showing full, with no scrubwrk folder shown. Also completed a checkdisk, and its still showing my hard drive is full. Any suggestions?
