I recently bought a 3TB Seagate Backup Plus Desktop Drive, but I have noticed the drive getting hot. I'm using Paragon Hard Disk Sentinel to monitor my drives and the new drive, since getting my new drive today the average temperature of the drive is 50.02 Celsius and the maximum is 54.87 Celsius. Surely the drive running at these temperatures is going to damage the drive. I would be grateful is someone who's knowledgeable could advice me. thanks

Our Barracuda data sheet contains the temperature guidelines for our current hard drives.
