I just bought a 200GB Maxtor Drive without checking one important factor. I heard that certain drives above 80GB tend to heat up and cannot run continiously 24/7. Is that true and would my drive fit that category? There is nothing indicated on the drive box or instructions. Can someone answer this. Thanks.

It is false. Yeaj A 2000GB can and does heat more than lets say a 120GB but as long as you have a sufficient Power Supply fan and CPU fan and possible a Case fan then not to worry.

Negative.  As long as you have decent cooling you should be fine; if in doubt after leaving your PC on for a few days, turn it off overnight or even just for a few hours to leave it to cool again, and you should be fine. (:
