When i Sync it is normally 8-24 hours to complete with platter hard drives stacked on top of each other. So I have concerns about head buildup. I have an app that monitors smart attributes and when it alarms i come pause the sync but especially when i have to at some point sleep, it would be nice if this was baked into FFS.

Does anyone else share my interest in this feature?

- it should be able to determine which drives are being synced and only pause on those two. so if another drive is going critical that should not impact the sync.
- it should be able to auto resume when the temp subsides

I emailed some code snippets for windows and linux to the dev, already but what does everyone else think?

heatwatch begins (the eyes are the USB ports on the front of the seagate hub drive)

No interest from me. You should design your case to have proper airflow. You should be able to use them 24/7 without heat being an issue

Also, if you are stacking drives and not leaving a gap between them, don't do that

The drives are designed to stack. But constant reading/writing for hours will heat them up.

I have tried not stacking but it makes almost no difference in the drive temp

Needs more airflow

This, https://www.itprotoday.com/business-continuity/how-much-does-hard-disk-temperature-matter says:

5/50 C (41/122 F)

so while you're certainly hot, perhaps not quite yet at the boiling point (though given how hot you are, I wouldn't push it).

58c is what I hit during this latest mirror operation.
