    How to prevent secondary drive from starting once in sleep mode.

    Hi All.

    Appreciative that I can post my question. Win Version No: 18362.388

    I have a primary drive (Win 10) and a secondary drive (Win 7). My primary drive is my default drive and system that I run. Secondary drive is only there for when I need Win 7.

    Every nine and again when using my primary drive I hear my secondary drive start up from sleep mode that it has entered into. I am not accessing any files from my secondary drive when running my primary drive.

    How can I prevent my secondary drive from randomly starting like this once it has entered sleep mode after system startup to primary drive.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    With thanks

    Win10 likes to enumerate any attached drives when it wants. I'd look at the Power Options to check when a drive can be turned off, set for the same or shortly after Sleep starts.
