This is a follow up to
(I am not able to comment there).
I have used the dock with the spin-down after 10 minutes turned on and it is kind of a nuisance. Is there any real disadvantage to having spin-down turned off (“spin indefinitely”)? I mean compared to a hard drive connected directly to the MB controller in a desktop system that never goes to sleep, is there any difference between that and the hard drive in this enclosure with spin-down off?
