    External HDD always remains powered even when the console is off.


    I have the console in power saving mode, after the last ALPHA ring update I noticed that when I turn off the console my external HDD Seagate USB 3.2 RGB firecuda 2TB always remains powered the front LED of the HDD continues to flash. Before the last update it never did. I have also already reported the problem from the console.

    "When Xbox is off, turn off storage"

    From what I have read, when external HDD's were first introduced they would always stay on, so this option was for those hard drives that would remain on even while the xbox was off :)

    External HDD spins and stops repeatedly

    You can turn off the external HDDs when the console is off by going to settings>power & startup>power & startup mode and stopping the HDD drive staying on when console is off.

    If your console is in instant on and set to keep all games and apps up to date this means that the HDD will power up/stay on to download whilst off.

    External storage problem after latest system update

    My external HDD is doing this wether the option is checked or not, but only while my Xbox is in standby mode. The only way it remains off is if my Xbox is completely powered down.

    Xbox just keeps spinning the external HDDs when in Quick start mode.

    There is an option in the settings, can't remember where to get the xbox to power down an external HDD when the console is of. I think it only works with HDD that don't have an external power supply.

    If it is on with one with external power supply then I would say something is wrong as mine doesn't spin up while the Xbox is off unless it's downloading an update for a game.
