    I just bought a re-furbished TC 1 gig. I noticed then researched these things commonly running hot. I removed the rubber pad and turned it upside down and elevated it just a tiny bit. Is this a good solution or do these need operate right side up? thanks. :confused:

    There are 3 acceptable ways to position a hard drive and 1 very wrong way. Standing vertically, on it's side or horizontally flat are all acceptable ways. Upside down is the worst possible way to position a HD.

    The optimal way is right side up (label up) and flat.
