I own a My Book Essential 3TB external hard drive (model: WDBACW0030HBK-EESN).
Today I was copying some files (roughly 1,5 tb in size) and the temperature reached 42°C.
I’m worried about 2 factors here:
is this temperature normal? (the ambient temperature is 21°C).
reallocated sectors count - 140. Is this ok? And, when should I start to worry about that one?
Thank for any info and help =)
