this is too high , sata disks should be kept at 40 c.

get a hard disk cooler.

or maybe smthings wrong with your software monitoring it, cause it cannot run at that temps.

well the threshold temps for most hdd's are 48-50 C. after this temp the disk gets damaged resulting in bad sectors.

either ur disk is messed up, or the hdtune.

At this temperature the HDD should be very hot to touch - have you checked by touching it ? This should be the best confirmation that the HDD is really at this high temperature.
