That's good to know...do you happen to know if this issue applies to the USB-C versions? I have one of these... and it gets insanely hot imho. I don't leave it in a machine but I do use it to move big files and folders, as well as backing up a 64GB phone. Under those conditions it gets bloody hot. I try not to use it too often because of the heat issue, and I don't trust it enough for anything vital.
