hard drive problem

Yesterday, when I was playing a game (overwatch) the game crashed.It was installed on my hard drive (1 TB).That happened many times, then I touched my hard drive and the temperature was pretty high I can say.What is the problem, the temperature or the hard drive? I permanently damaged it?

  1. 1| Can you please pass on your full system's specs like so:
    CPU:
    Motherboard:
    Ram:
    SSD/HDD:
    GPU:
    PSU:
    Chassis:
    OS:

    2| It'd also be a good idea to state if you have additional fans for airflow and how they are oriented in your case, i.e intake and exhaust.

    3| By the way you've stated the issue it's possible that the drive is overheating or that it's come to the end of it's useful life cycle. How many partition's do you have off that one 1TB HDD? Is that the only drive in your build?

    Here are a couple of things it may be a good idea to do here:

    Download our free diagnostic tool SeaTools to check the drive's health

    There are 3rd party softwares out there that tell you system specifics like make/model of components and temps. May want to see what the specific temp of the HDD is. It's hard to say specifically without knowing the exact model of HDD, but the spec for normal operating temps is usually between 0-60 degrees Celsius, so that's probably right around what the spec for your drive would look like.
  4. I would recommend connect the hardrive to the another PC and copy all sensitive data
