Windows 7: How necessary is cooling on hard drives?

There isnt actually any room for cooling, and as for storage, unlike America where you pay for speed, we pay for data, and I have 20gb a month So online storage isnt possible.

If I read your earlier post correctly you have 1TB of data you would really hate to lose. What if you used 250GB of your data cap per month for four months to get it securely stored elsewhere? If it's not worth that much to you then maybe it isn't as important as you think.

For that matter, you could probably scrounge some old hard drives in the 200GB range for next to nothing and use them until you could afford a 1 or 2 TB drive to do it right. I'm not trying to be a nag, but without a backup of any sort it's not a question of if you will lose all your data, but when. The corollary to Murphy's Law is as reliable as the sunrise.

Ok, well hard drives have been in place several hours now. I dont run the computer 24/7 so I think the current tremperatures are a reasonable representation of what they are likely to be most the time. My primary drive varies from 34 to 36 degrees, and my secondary from 32 to 33. This is a difference of only 2-3 degrees over before, so all looks good. Thanks for the help guys
