Solid State Drive firmware update utility

I am almost finished updating Windows 7 drivers on my X300 notebook. This SSD firmware update is making me a bit nervous. Is it safe?

I recently upgraded my 55GB to 256GB, and love it, love it, love it! Is there any harm in not updating?

 If not, instructions say to remove the SSD password, but not sure how/where to do that. Couldn't find any reference in the hardware User Guide.

Thanks in advance.

Updating is safe, there is MINIMAL risk.
Just don't power down your machine and you're in good stead..
I've done it many times and never had a problem and I know you won't either!

Hope this helps!

not updating is fine either as long as it is not having any problem with operation, but as Cornerit said do not power down your machine while the firmware update is happening, make sure you have your notebook/laptop plugged into the power source on the main and have the battery plugged in with fully charge to last just to be safe.

Updating the SSD' firmware normally increases performance and speed. I'd Recommend the upgrade and you should also change your Virtual Memory settings.
