Found this on the Qnap wiki.....http://www.claus-henning.thecappells.net...D_SpinDown
After performing this script on the Qnap,using putty, (i disable everything at crontab) the HDD won't spin down at all (firmware Qnap 3.6.0.)On advice from Briain(Linn forum) i loaded the latest firmware (3.6.1) and tried again,now the Disc spins down nicely,and the spin-ups are limited to 2(from 7) now,and all spin-ups happens at night. But,there must be more background activity going on that is not visible at crontab.Sadly enough,the modifications on the script are gone in the morning (rebooting?),so i have to perform the modification everyday over and over again.There must be a way to save the changes to the script,but how??...anybody who's familiar with this?
I found this solution,but it did not work.http://wiki.qnap.com/wiki/Add_items_to_crontab
1. Edit /etc/config/crontab and add your custom entry.
2. Run 'crontab /etc/config/crontab' to load the changes.
3. Restart cron, i.e. '/etc/init.d/crond.sh restart'
I always get the message "permission denied"
I tried the restart command alone,but no luck.
Thanks in advance....
