A few days ago I was using a 1TB Seagate drive. I had it partitioned (50GB for SO + rest for everything else).
I then bought a new PC, and with it, an SSD (OCZ Vertex II 90gb). I now have Windows 7 + apps all on the SSD and the HDD is just for storage.
Everything runs great but when I open my PC (or any Explorer windows), I experience a small delay (a couple of seconds) and then hear clicking noise in the computer that sounds like the HDD starting to spin. I'm suspecting this is caused by the HDD not being used all the time, because when I had this HDD only with Windows 7 in there I didn't have this issue.
Is there a way to avoid the HDD going in to "sleep" mode when I'm actually using the PC even though I'm not directly accessing anything in it?
