    How Can I stop USB Drive From Powering Down?


    I know, I went to the USB HUBS and told windows to stop powering down the drive in my new SATA III to USB 3 Dock. However, it stops spinning after a few minutes anyway. Is there anything else I can do? It is a Sabrent EC-DFFN if it matters and the drive is a new 4TB Toshiba Enterprise MG03ACA400.

    There is a setting in Control Panel, Power Options about power saving and turning off the USB ports, might check that.

    Do you mean USB Selective Suspend? It is enabled by default so does that keep the USB HDD powered on?
