Free Parking at Western Digital

Got a parking problem with your Western Digital Green hard drive?  Our friends over at Accelerate Your Mac ( have posted a great article on Using WDidle3 to disable Head Parking w/Western Digital Green Hard Drives on a Mac.

It is thought among some circles that each time a hard drive’s head is parked, the total life cycle of that hard drive is shortened.  Just like people only get so many birthdays, hard drives only get so many head parks. For those of you that subscribe to this theory, now can you extend the life of your Western Digital Green hard drive, which incidentally we carry at a Great Value for a mere $137.99.
