    Hard drive turns on for no reason?


    My HDD is set to turn off after 20 minutes without use. But very often it turns on for no reason even if I don't even have a program open. It's not the antivirus program. It switches itself on and off 5-10 times a day. How can I solve the problem? Or it would be best to turn off the hard drive manually because I only use it every few months anyway. But I don't want to open and close the case every time to remove or connect the cables.

    :)
