Is Hibernation support necessary when you're running WD Reds


Recommended Posts

Had a quick google around and can't find a straight answer.


I'm running a Windows 10 machine with Hyper-V on the top.

The disks are set to offline in Win10 then as direct attached LUN's to my Xpenology VM.


One or more disks keeps disappearing entirely. I've looked around and found it's likely to be as a result of Windows power options, it was set to hibernate a disk after 20 minutes. I've switched this to 0 so it should hopefully keep it in the system, but noticed there's a 20 minute setting in DSM. Can this be left on? Or should it be switched off? I'm running WD Reds so I know they have their own idle settings built in.


Any advice would be appreciated.
