Getting very warm. SanDisk 2TB Extreme Portable SSD, USB-C, External NVMe 1050 MB/s,

Is this normal? This is my first high capacity SSD drive (others are 256Gb or less).
No other drives get as warm as this, and I am concerned that I might suffer data loss due to overheating.
The drive is currently formatted exfat for Mac/Windows compatibility.
I have had the drive for six weeks from new, and have only just started to use it.
Do I need to worry?
