IMPORTANT NOTE:

  • Updating your firmware with the OCZ Toolbox/CLOUT is not supported under Windows XP
  • Always download the latest OCZ Toolbox/CLOUT Version from ocz.com/enterprise for your enterprise product
  • Flashing your SSD(s) should not result in data loss. However, OCZ recommends that you back up your data as a precaution before proceeding
  • Internet connection is required for firmware update
