I have a Crucial 1tb SSD doing a Time Machine back up on my iMac M1 machine and it appears to be getting quite hot.

Can anyone tell me if this is normal as I am new to both the M1 imac and external SSDs

Thank you for your quick reply.

It is an X8 and it was way above blood temp and was doing a Time Machine back up of almost 700 gig. TM has stopped rather than finished and showing '332GB available', 'Oldest Backup: None' and 'Latest Backup: None'. Believe me that is a different story of the non backups!

I am just a bit worried about the possibility of a new SSD going toes up?

Commonly known as 'early life failure'. I know that Crucial have a good reputation, so I will hope for the best.

Thank you for your replies and I hope that you have a Happy New Year and a happy, healthy 2022 in these stupid times
