Will updating my SSD wipe my data?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
My ssd is my os drive, will it still be able to update and will it erase all my data?

I have a Patriot Pyro 120 GB.
Thanks biggrin.gif

As far as i know if your SSD is the bootable drive you can not upgrade it. It is a bummer really.

I have the same drive, on their "non destructive" firmware upgrades you should have no problem. I've been stable on 3.32, but when I upgraded it was my os drive and worked fine.although I still recommended backing up just in case.

Thank you!
I was able to successfully update my SSD to the 5.0.2 biggrin.gif

I wonder if this is good speed for the Patriot Pyro 120 GB
