I'm planning on buying a Fit-PC 2 for use as HTPC/file serving server. This will involve hooking it up to about 6 external USB hard drives (3 via an USB hub and 3 on the main hub). Because this computer will be on 24/7 it is essential
for those hard drives to go to sleep when they are not needed.
My questions therefore are:
1) I'm going to load it with Windows 2003 Server, will this (in combination with the hardware) allow for the hard drives connected directly to the Fit-PC 2 to go to standby?
2) How about USB hubs? Will the hard drives connected to the USB hub be allowed to go to stand by?
I'm not at all familiar with how USB harddrive standby works, hence the questions
Thanks in advance!
