I was so happy to find this applet but I am stuck before I get started. After downloading and running for the first time I get an AppleScript? error:

touch: /Volumes/ServerShares1/.keepThisDriveSpinning: Invalid argument

I saw an earlier problem where the volume had no name but ServerShares1 is a valid volume name.

Hope you can help or suggest a debug path for me.

Thanks for writing this.

False alarm - I tried again this morning and it works in the sense that the .keepThisDriveSpinning is now created on my /Volumes/ServerShares1. I'm not sure why. Maybe the drive had already spun down and self-ejected when I tried to run the applet yesterday.

Assuming that this solves the problem, I plan on moving this Launch Agent to/Library/Launch/Daemons since this volume is attached to an always-on server. This is based on Jon's reply to ToddWilling on March 13, 2013.
