I have an ADATA XPG SX8200NP 500GB NVM3 SSD as my boot drive. I installed the ADATA SSD Toolbox software and when I run and go to the Utilities Tab and click on Firmware Update, it warns me that it might destroy my data and that I need to back up my data before proceeding. Is this really necessary or is this just to cover their liability if something goes wrong? I've had this drive as my primary boot drive for about a year and never checked to see if there was a firmware update.

I appreciate your response but that's not what I asked. I primarily have the operating system installed on this drive and most of my files on a different drive. I'm sure there are many others who have used the ADATA SSD Toolbox software who can tell me if they have ever experienced it causing the loss of any of there data and that's what I want to know.

I just signed up for an IDrive account since it's currently only $6.95 for the first year for an individual account for 2TB. It is backing up my 2 drives on my desktop PC and my Android phone right now. When completed, I will update the Firmware on my NVMe SSD.
