My System Specs

Default Second HDD goes inactive

Hi. I have an OCZ Vertex 3 120gb boot drive and a Hitachi 2tb storage drive.

None of my programs run off of the hdd so far. All of my music and pictures are on it though. If try to save a new picture online it seems like the computer freezes for a couple seconds as the hdd spins up. I think that drive turns off after a short time.

I went into my power save options. There was no option to turn OFF hdd sleep mode, so I set it for 600 minutes. Is this the proper way of keeping this drive active?

Delete the numbers in the time box. Should default to "Never".
