Just bought Nighthawk X6S R8000P, My attatched External HDD won't go into standby mode
I came from an Apple Airport Extreme where everything was easy peasy. I just plugged my 6TB Seagate External HDD into the router USB, it showed up in the finder with the right names that I gave each partition and stayed into standby mode until someone accessed it on plex etc then it would fire up, then go into standby mode again after it was done being used.
Fast forward to today...I bought a Netgear Nighthawk X6S R8000P and it was easy to hook up until I plugged my external HDD into the USB slot. My partitions are now named (Q Drive, S Drive, R Drive) and are a massive pain to try and rename and my HDD has been spinning since I hooked the router up. Tell me this router isnt gonna make my external HDD spin 24/7 bc that will drive me absolutely crazy. Why hasnt my Seagate gone into standby mode yet. Its been like 6 hours so far.
