    Hard drive APM control Windows 10?


    I have a Seagate HDD which has a really dumb APM setting. This makes it spin down and make extra noise.

    In Windows 7, I managed to auto disable per session basis, but in Windows 10, this does not seem to work any more.

    Are there any proven way to control APM settings in Windows 10? I really can figure it out.

    :)

    File setup.exe not supported on Fire portable unit.

    Are you looking for the option "Turn Hard disk off after XX minutes".... I input 0 minutes and then it says "Turn Hard-drive off never". Its in power settings.
    I had to do this to fix issues on my computer.

    No, I already have that set to "Never" and it does not fix my problem.

    I'm looking for a permanent solution or at least a program that can fix it automatically when I start the computer.

    Check your HDD manual, some, so called "Green" drives have their own APM modes that work independently of OS.

    Yes, you are right. This is the issue.

    I also figured out a decent workaround; I used a program called "APMDisable" to simply disable the APM spindown, but it resets every time the computer is restarted. I can not put it in "Startup" because of UAC limits. Task Scheduler did not work either.

    I finally found a small program called "Elevated Startup". I enabled it and put the autostart shortcut in there and voila! It works. Lovely little app. Hard drive APM control Windows 10? :)
