3dsmax - External HDD Issue

Troubleshooting 3dsmax

Since I have been working on a laptop recently I keep my large assets, textures, models etc on an external hard drive which most of my 3D files are linked to. What I was not aware of is that your hard drive goes to sleep automatically after awhile - which you will notice a few seconds lag when diving down a few folders deep if you have not used your hard drive directly for 10-20 minutes. Fortunately I found a fix on a blog which I found recently which fixed my crashing issues completely and so far so good, ill update this otherwise.
