TS-253Be spin up/spin down HD’s very few min

Post by 1FASTM » Fri Nov 30, 2018 8:28 am

I keep hearing my HD’s spin up and down every few minutes. I’m only using the QNAP for a Plex Server. The system is idle when I hear the spin up/spin down. It does it even if I shutdown the Plex Server off.

I don’t recall this happening before the latest QNAP firmware update. Anyone have any ideas on how to fix this?

Firmware 4.3.5.0760
Plex Version 1.14.0.5470

Sorry guys! It turned out to be an old contour recorder that’s still on. I will delete this thread.

Thanks for the input.
