200GB Maxtor Drive

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.

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. (:

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.
