Is it possible to create individual power settings for each hard drive?

    I have a number of different drives that I use for different purposes but I only use two of them frequently.
    I would like for the others to enter sleep mode when not in use, but never my main two.

    Is there any way to edit power saving settings for individual drives?

    Whilst it isn't possible to define power modes for individual drives you can set power options to turn off drives if they're not be used after a certain amount of time.

    As was mine... The answer is no.
