Hello! I read on the internet that SATA hotplug is a feature that allows you to attach and remove a SATA drive the same way you do with USB sticks. But my question is, is there any other advantage? I saw some time ago something on the MSI website (I have an MSI Z68A-GD65 (G3) motherboard) that it's recommended to activate SATA hotplug but I can't remember why. Now that advice is gone, and I also can't find the answer for my question.

Its not really an advantage unless you need the feature. Typically one don't swich SATA drive on a daily basis. On the other hand there is no disadvantage in leaving it on.
This is more important in a server environment where you don't want to disconnect a bunch of users just to swap out a storage or backup drive (or failed drive).
