cheers to all,
in hdtune it shows me around 50-52 degrees during transfers and 43-46 in idle.
Is ok to have 50 degrees for a hdd in transfer mode? 50C is not too hot?Is there an external coling solution for that?
thank you,
model hdd is : WD Elements 25A1

Its fine. External HDD will run hotter because they are in an enclosed case. The temperature you are experiencing is perfectly normal.
