Good afternoon experts,
I have a plethora of internal drives that I simply mount into sata mounting bays for easy access. For clarity , I always eject properly before taking them out of their respective dual bays. However ejecting them is not the problem, I just wanted to ensure you understand that I don't simply pull them out when they are mounted , thus increasing the chances for damaging the drives with cyclic redundancy errors.
The real problem is that the drives get reallllllly hot when I leave them in for more than a few hours. It doesn't matter is they are Seagate or Western Digital, the result is the same, HOT!!!!
I downloaded the following drive monitoring pdf , that recommends software to monitor the state of my HDD's: Best-Free-Hard-Drive-Health-Monitoring-a
, but these are only monitoring tools. I would like some suggestions on software I can buy that can both monitor, alert and fix drives that are reaching a threshold of impending failure. I am not sure if I am using the right nomenclature to describe what I am looking for , but that is the best that I can describe the issue.
To be even more specific, how do I cool down these drives so they don't fail?
