This might give you some idea if you can find the exct drive

temps may be in the range
Operating 32 F to 140 F (-0 C to 60 C)
Non-operating -40 F to 158 F (-40 C to 70 C)
from the specs on one of the drives, not all will be identical.

Really wasn't sure if I should put this in PC Help, as it's actually for my car. Basically, over the summer I put a new amplifier in my car, and mounted a hard drive into the console as well. The drive managed to sustain being in a closed up car at 92 F one day in the summer, but I'm now trying to figure out how much damage it could cause if I leave it in the bitter cold of winter (it can get down to -15 F easily here).

What would the safe operating temperature be for an external hard drive. It's a western digital passport - but I couldn't tell you the model to save my life.

Thanks.
