Anyone have any success with this? I want to keep power to my SSDs for Garbage Collection's sake but I don't need my data or backup HDDs spinning. I know Windows can't do this. I was looking into HDDScan...but, eh I'm not sure if that's the best solution.

Anyone have any advice? HDDScan lets you create a batch file, but it sounds like a one-off solution because the script self-exits after completion. I feel like this is a really common issue because I bet it's safe to say that anyone running an SDD is also running an HDD for data.

It's really not necessary for my backup and Data HDDs to be spinning constantly. :(
