I bought some months ago a secondary hard disk, which is a WDC one, which as many of you may know, turns itself off after some idle time. I don't like this too much, as turning on a hard disk often reduces their lifespan. Later I managed to configure this timeout to 5 minutes; so for some months, it only turned on less than once a day on average.
Since I installed Kaspersky Internet Security, it's been turning on 4 times per day on average. I rarely use the disk, as it is just a backup drive. The last time it turned on, I quickly checked the Resource Monitor and noticed that it was because of this klmeta.dat file, inside the System Volume Information folder.
Is there a way to avoid KIS from doing this? Otherwise, I will be forced to have some dummy program accessing the disk every 4 minutes to keep it from turning off at all...
