Keeping drives status after loosing power

  • Hi,

    I have an USB 3.2 3.5" SATA Hard Drive Tray-less Docking Station (model number DS-SC5B).

    When there's a blackout and the docking station losses power, after restoring the electric supply, all the drives will stay off, no matter how they were before the outage.

    If you have the unit pluged into a remote PC and the blackout lasted longer than the UPS battery, you'd loose access to the drives until you physically go to the remote location and press each drive power button to turn them on again.

    Is there a way to make the docking unit restore each drive power status as thery were before lossing power?

    If not, could Sabrent implement this into a firmware update, please?


    Best regards.


  • @Fox MacLure I will look into this, but I believe it is by design to prevent hardware damage. I'm not sure if there is a workaround to enable a way to remotely repower.

  • Maybe it could be implemented as an optional setting, with an alternative firmware, a tweking tool, or something like that, so every user could choose whatever behaviour they prefer: to keep all drives turned off, or to recover their last state.

    Thank you for your quick response anyway.
