Yep, its set to “0”.

good point .. 🙂

You sure it does behave like that? Would be cool though …



yeah, that’s what it’s for. When it’s set to 0, then it only scans for changes when clients are connected. Otherwise, it keeps the hard drive from spinning down. The whole point of me throwing away my big file server for a slug was to get a box that had negligible power requirements and ran cool and quiet. Letting the drive spin down helps that a lot.

You are, of course, welcome to set it to 1, and you will get constant file system rescans.
