    I recently purchased a 2 TB TC. I also have a 2 TB HD on which I store all of my data. Since I use the data on my external fairly frequently, I'm nervous about putting it on the HD in the TC, because frequent use would cause the hard drive to get warmer inside and lead to failure sooner. Does that seem reasonable? Also, does plugging in a 2 TB HD (which is plugged into an outlet) add heat to the TC?

    OP: NO!!! It won't overheat, please use the SEARCH function next time >> LOL. Now, if you don't mind I'm going to jack your thread now....:D

    Since we are on the subject of time capsule's. I recently bought one, and every few hours I get a pop-up saying that the time machine backup drive cannot be found. And it won't show up in Airport Utility or in Finder... Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.
