    For some reason when I enable my NTFS for OSX driver by Paragons it keeps my HDD from sleeping.There is no Alias or any app that accesses my Bootcamp partition because I share folders between the two OS's located on my HFS+ Partition instead. So ran "sudo fs_usage" and the command showed what was accessing my disk1(HDD) and to be specific it was accessing my Bootcamp as it showed /disk1s3/Bootcamp and the file/command/thing was: oiansfa14124CACHE (sorry letters i put in front of CHACHE are random not exactly the ones shown in fs_usage but my point is they are random #+letters and end with CACHE) doesn't do it when i disable my NTFS for OSX and restart......then my HDD sleeps like normal(set to in 5mins)....anyone using the driver and having similar results?

    I always used unmount/mount scripts to counter that problem.
    Now I just use exFAT for my data drive and it works perfectly now.
    My bootcamp NTFS is on the SSD because otherwise the SSD would have been a bit of a waste of money.
