[MacBook Pro mid-2014 retina, Macos Mojave 10.14.1]

I have a 3TB WD Elements (5400rpm) usb3 hard drive plugged into my laptop which I use for storing larger files since my laptop only had 500GB. I'm rather frustrated that the drive goes to sleep/park between uses (say 10 minutes or so) and slows down my workflow.

Judging from the led indicator on the drive, the drive is always on. However, I don't want to wait for the drive to spin up before it reads the directory structures etc. I rather it remain ready all the time while I'm using my computer.

How can I stop this behaviour?
