    Should this drive have any jumpers on it when used as a STORAGE drive in Windows 10?

    It keeps spinning up randomly on it's own and it didn't do that before in XP.

    right click on your HDD - click properties - under General settings uncheck the "Allow files on this drive to have contents indexed
    in addition to file properties" - https://forums.tomshardware.com/threads/how-to-keep-hdd-off-till-i-need-it-to-spin-up.2735023/

    I saw that option but was unsure exactly what it would do. I'll do it now.
    THANK YOU
