    Hey

    I have a few HDDs attached to my Airport Time Capsule and I frequently run into the problem that the hard drives have shut down after just a minute or so. This is very annoying for my workflow.

    Is there a way to increase the shutdown time for the external drives? Increase it to 10 minutes or so...?!

    thanks! :)

    To my knowledge, there is no way to configure the spin down time of a hard drive attached to an AirPort. The AirPort spins disks down to preserve power and the drive itself.
