BTW...if the internal drive dies on you and loose its data, do you also loose your external storage data once the internal drive is replaced and formatted?

No, someone stated the external hdd can withstand multiple internal hdd failures. And according to billcor62, he said his internal hdd gave the ghost and he restored most of his recorded shows, etc. by using g4l ddclone to another hdd.

With summer arrriving here the Moxi has been warming up and I've been hearing the fan spin up a few times now. So I had the time, a drill and a bout of curiosity and drilled two rows of 1/8 inch holes halfway along either side of the case to allow the fan to pull at least a tiny amount of cooler air inside.

I've always found it an odd design choice for the Moxi to be in a box with no airflow apart from that tiny fan and it's bothered me for a while. It has to be contributing to the drive deaths and when I pulled off the cover the drive was pretty hot. The Moxi is the only component I have without ventilation holes and considering it has a hard drive it really should have all the airflow it can get.

Before I drilled the holes this afternoon diagnostics reported a temp of 42/107.

Afterwards the temperature dropped all the way to ...

Spoiler!


So it did have an effect. I may add more holes the entire length of each side this weekend and give it as much air as I can. I think I have a better fan in my PC spares I can drop in too.
