Minor but noticeable

One thing I like about DTPO is that it doesn’t try to access drives about which it has no business. I have a lot of external drives, and usually keep them spun down for energy savings, etc., and mainly because I just don’t need to access them frequently. My DT data is on the boot volume. Many Mac apps spin up every attached drive for every open, save, quit action. DT doesn’t. A minor but noticeable pleasantry, that indicates good design.

Amen to that! This business of spinning up all mounted volumes in those instances is the one big factor in raising my blood pressure and slowing things down to a darn crawl for no good reason!

Anybody have any good scripts or tips to reduce unnecessary disk accesses?

Thanks to Dtech for not falling into that trap.
