WD140EDFZ-11A0VA0 14TB -- Operating Temperature?

I recently purchased a WD easystore 14TB HDD from Bestbuy & after running the extended test ( full sector scan ) with WD Data LifeGuard Diagnostics software the HDD is currently sitting idle at 56°C.
It seems awfully hot? My room’s ambient temp is only 74F / 23.3C I’m unable to find an official spec sheet for this specific External hard drive stating acceptable operating temperature range. Please advise. Thanks!

Enclosure : WD easystore 264D USB Device (V=1058, P=264D, sa1) - wd
Model : WDC WD140EDFZ-11A0VA0
Firmware : 81.00A81
Serial Number : #######
Disk Size : 14000.5 GB (8.4/137.4/14000.5/14000.5)

It does sound a bit on the toasty side… you should talk directly to WD.

I take it there isn’t any WD reps on this forum??
Should I just email them via the customer support portal…?

Should just email customer support. You can always share what you learn here though :slight_smile:
