I mean be careful if it is that hot, you'd burn your hand.
If you touch it is is that hot? I'd guess a bad sensor.

1/3 of highway deaths are caused by drunks. The rest are by people who can't drive any better than a drunk.

The motor and bearings are the major sources of heat in a hard drive so if it actually is getting that hot expect a failure soon:


Ding dong the witch is dead. . . .

How could you possibly believe 226F is the correct temp? That's hotter than boiling water! Most HDD have a max temp rating of 60C (140F). Your drive would have died long before it got up to 226F. You either have a bad sensor as mentioned by jefro, or you're using a crappy temp monitoring program. Try CrystalDiskInfo:
