No Spin3.4

15 October 2009

Prevent your external hard drives from spinning down.

Overview

No Spin was developed to help you prevent your external hard drives from spinning down and going to sleep when you don't want them to.

Simply add the volumes you wish to no longer spin down, then enter in an "interval" (for instance... if your drives are set to spin down after 60 seconds of inactivity, enter in an interval of 59). The lower your "interval" number, the less chance there is of your drive spinning down.

What's new in No Spin

Version 3.4:
  • No Longer works on your internal drive unless you add it to the list.

$10 for that?! This really should be freeware. Edit: In fact, I just made some freeware to do it. Took me a few minutes to write. It's called Keep Drive Spinning, and hosted here on MacUpdate.

Are these guys still around? Anyone heard from them lately? I paid for a license for this 5 days ago and still haven't received the license. I keep emailing them, but don't get a response. I'm starting to think I just threw 10 bucks down a black hole.

I'm not a developer; I'm not even a geek. So I need something that just works. This does it superbly, and has already improved my general efficiency (mush less time waiting for drives to wake up before I can actually do something). I reckon it's worth twice the asking price for what it does. Very responsive developer; I gave feedback -- he tweaked -- more feedback -- more tweaking -- fixed. I'm happy :)

Nice idea -- and a nice solution for the non-Developers among us. But the name seems odd... "No Spin"? It seems like this utility is all about spin. Keep it spinning. Don't let it spin down. "No Spin" sounds like it's already stopped and you want it to stay that way. Just sayin'. I'm not about to pay $10 for it, but I respect and appreciate that you want to put a nice UI on a useful function.

Well... if you want an "uncontrollable", "watered-down", "unsupported" piece of software... then "Keep Drive Spinning" may be for you. No Spin, is an easy-to-use interface that does not require messing around with your "System" folder. Also, if you have problems... just call. I have used "Freeware" before... and let me tell you: Getting the developer to respond to any emails or questions is a crap shoot. THANKS TO ALL NO SPIN USERS!!!! You business is greatly appreciated and equally rewared with customer support. Without you, we would not be able to make it better.
