How to stop HDD rotating before safe disconnect?

  • lk0001 Monday, July 17, 2017 7:40 PM Reply

    I cannot stop HDD rotating before safe disconnect. HDD spindle is always rotating. Power management does not work, SMART attributes cannot be read.

    I tried Crystal Diskinfo and Victoria with no result.

    Other docking stations does not have such problems.

    Hello @lk0001

    This is normal. There are tracks on HDD. It will rotate a few seconds as there is no resistance when power is off. This will not affect the data and the HDD. Be reassured please.

    Be happy. ( *^_^* )

    I am working in data recovery for 20 years and I know what is normal and what is not. 

    I need to stop HDD rotating before safe disconnect. All ATA drives since 1993 have ability to  stop spindle rotating, but this K3092 docking probably does not support it.
