There's your clue. Can you set it on top of a box fan? As to repairs, no, that usually doesn't work.
I seem to have trouble with my drive. I'm currently attempting to work with the company and getting absolutely no responses.
problem: USB or eSATA fail after few minutes of use. The port drops the connection and I must let it site for a minimum of 5 minutes. Tested on 4 computers and acts the same. If I try to do too many HD actions ( rename, move, copy ) at once its sure to fail right away.
I have been turn it on backing up what I can. 750 GB is not easy to back up .. I would think its a cold solder joint but cant be sure, and I dont have surface electronic tolls to set it. Not to mention it would void my warranty. I did notice the drive get very hot. The fat in on its last barring and the warranty stick adhesive has melted. I question whether or not I'd be able to replace it with simpletech.
1) I guess my question is, where can a person by this board replacement?
2) Does this sound right, could it be the board.
