How to spin down second HD
I have two internal HD's in my system. One is the primary HD and I have all my stuff on it. The other is basically only for movies and stuff that I don't want to clutter my main drive with.
I have windows 7 and Mint Debian with Gnome 3 and XFCE installed in my system and in both windows 7 and xfce, the second drive spins down after about 10 - 15 min. On Gnome 3 however this does not happen. I was wondering if there is any way I can make the second drive spin down after a certain amount of time in gnome.
I'm asking because I work on this system and many times, don't even mount the second HD. Just thought that doing this will save a bit of wear and tear on the drive and hopefully increase its life.
