    Sleeping secondary hdd spinning up every 2 hours

    How to stop windows10 from spinning up my secondary hdd every 2 hours?

    In event log i see "Event 15, SecurityCenter" "Updated Windows Defender status successfully to SECURITY_PRODUCT_STATE_ON." every ~2 hours, and that spins up hdd.
    i added that drive to exclusions in defender settings but didn't help.
