I know it goes against common logic, but the HDs will last longer if they newer spin down.
Personally my NAS newer spins down.
If you really want to be more green put it on a power schedule that turns it off at night/during the hours you are not home.
I am pretty sure that Roon designed the nucleus to take the taller 4TB drives. Internal/directly attached drives will perform better than a NAS. Use the NAS for backup.
I recently moved my USB local drive connected to a PC, running Linux and where Roonserver is running, to a NAS and reconfigured Roon to point to the NAS storage. I see that Roon is constantly accessing the network storage even if music aren’t playing. If I stop Roonserver the disk activity stops.
Wondering why would Roon do this ? Is Roon trying to monitor it ? Any way I can disable it ? In the Storage configuration I have “automatic rescan interval” set to 8 hrs.
The constant churning of my QNAP NAS has been doing me head in over the last couple of months! Even when I’m not listening to music the drive (which is under my desk) drives me insane and it’s taken this long to discover Roon is the cause!
I have no stored music and only listen to Tidal and Live Radio so why does Roon need to constantly access the drive?
