I enable it because some harddisks are for backup purpose.  So, they are seldom to have read / write activity.  However, if your harddisks need frequently to read / write, this power function may not be useful to you.

事實上就係咁。當指定時間內冇讀/寫便會停止轉動,一有讀/寫便再轉動。因system disc會不停讀/寫,所以system disc基本上不會停。但如果每次讀/寫時間太短,如30分~1小時,咁HDD的停頓時間便會很短,而要不停起動/停止,咁就冇咗意思了。

I used to disable this option, but now I have at least 2 hdds that are almost full and will not read frequently!  I wish the option can be more powerful and can be set individually for each hdd!
