Re: Hard drive spinning up and down constantly

I can't seem to get it to work. I'm using the cron package on the WebGUI.

Here's my list of cron jobs:

And here's the edit page:

I set the dir to /usr/bin because that's where most of the other cron jobs are, so I figured that would work. Should I not have done that?
