For some reason my main 1tb barracuda drive started to just spin down and back up again every 20 or so seconds. In the Disks application I see zzz appear next to the drive and when it spins up it disappears.

I already checked the spindown and standby values and set both to never. Any ideas?


Turns out the standby value was set to never but it was not actually set to on. Not it works.
