Re: Firmware

I would say it's rare that data has been restored, not even to mention the disk.

I've done hundreds of disk f/w upgrades in training courses and never once say a pb, even though students were determined to break the rules.

Just don't power off, or access the disk during the f/w upgrade.

Follow the instruction carefully and you should be okay.

A backup is always nice to have just in case.

It works for me (tm)

Re: Firmware

I have seen weirdness with firmware in an FC10.

However, upgrading to a later revision solved our problems. We had a lot of dead disks and were just lucky that we mirrored.
