    I just got the idea to put the HDD in spin down only during nights.
    I created below scripts and thinking to put them in cru list. I am in development phase.
    If you have any ideas please share. I searched the forums but did not find something similar.

    #spin down on during days
    killall -q sd-idle-2.6
    nvram set usb_idle_timeout=0
    nvram commit
    #spin down during nights
    nvram set usb_idle_timeout=7200
    nvram commit
    killall -q sd-idle-2.6
    sleep 10
    sd-idle-2.6 -i 7200
