Temperature S.M.A.R.T. parameter indicates a drive temperature.


This parameter is considered informational by the most hardware vendors. Although degradation of this parameter can be an indicator of drive aging and/or potential electromechanical problems, it does not directly indicate imminent drive failure. Decreasing value may indicate a possible reducing of the drive lifespan if working at higher temperature. Try to provide more adequate air flowing for the drive so it could cool down. Anyway, regular backup is recommended. Pay closer attention to other parameters and overall drive health.
