I have an external USB hdd which is running nightly backups. Lately I noticed the S.M.A.R.T. system warned med of high temperature and I noticed that the disk is never spin down.
So, I started Process Monitor (procmon) and noticed that every 5 seconds cmdagent.exe is issuing the following requests on the root path of my drive:
If I remember correctly I hadn’t this issue some months ago (tried uninstalling Comodo but then I could not get any inbound such as rdp sessions etc. to work for some weird reason so I had to re-install Comodo).
Any tips of how I can get comodo firewall to stop querying my usb hdd?
With respect to the seemingly incorrect behavior of cmdagent.exe querying drive every 5 seconds, drive seem to spindown properly if I connect it via esata instead of usb (however the CreateFile etc. according to procmon are still querying, even though drive is not spinning).
A have the same problem, only my disk(s) is(are) connected to SATA.
I have a SSD with Windows installed on it, and a (noisy!!) HDD, so I wish the later to spin down when unused. Unfortunately cmdagent accesses the HDD every 5 seconds, in a way described in previous post, preventing it from turning off.
