Hi Haidy_Samir , 




The usual harddrive usually runs mechanically with platters and pin as data are being read / written on its sectors.

With stress and strain deteriorates performance and integrity as the mechanical parts wears down. 

Heat maybe one of the symptoms.


Best that you backup all your data asap and then run diagnostics test like LSC.


Update us how it goes.
