Hi, I have a problem with btsync triggering my external usb disk to spin up when there is no transfers going on. I'm using BitTorrent Sync to sync some folders that usually don't change much. I'm running it on a Raspberry pi, Windows and Android. Since the Raspberry pi doesn't consume much power, I leave it on all of the time. However, since there are some days in which the content of the folders don't change at all, I am very interested in getting the USB hard disk connected to the pi to spin-down. The spinning-down works well, I am using a tiny program called hd-idle. The problem is that bts
I have btsync running on a HDD which I would like to spin-down after a certain period of inactivity (say 30 min). I've currently set the folder_rescan_interval to 7200 (~ 2h), but the HDD does not go into low power mode.

Hi, I posted a related thread here, but this post is about looking at the problem from a different angle. I have a linux machine with read-only secrets synchronising with a Windows machine.
