Hard Disk No Stop

Description:
This freeware utility prevents hard drives that are connected to USB docking
stations from powering down (because of their firmware) due to inactivity of the
read/writes heads. It simply writes to a log file at regular intervals thus
preventing the frequent power up and down, consequently extending the lifespan
of the hard drive.

Instructions:
Just extract the contents of the .zip file to a location of the external hard disk and
then run “Hard Disk No Stop.exe”. The hard drive will stay active as long as the
program is running.
Double clicking on the tray icon will restore the program’s window. Also, by right
clicking the tray icon you can exit and restore the program as well.
