I noticed that the Load Cycle Count for the hard drive head is going up REALLY fast. On my JW, I'm at LCC ~33,000 already in 3 months... Standard drives last around 300,000 or so. I'm wondering if this hard drive will fail by the end of next year. Is anyone aware of this? Don't tell me to upgrade to SSD (no money). Anyone knows how to decrease the LCC activity as it's done on those Western Digital drives?

Just found the HD that comes with the JW is rated for 600,000 LCC's. That's 20 months worth at this rate... way too fast I think.

Check what the power settings are on turning off the HDD. Also, the HDD manages itself for the most part, so there usually isn't much that you can do.
