Downloading & installing are not the issue.
How to use it is the problem!

Once you change the phy number to "11":
- how do you save that entry?
- how do you "download" the change to the drive?

I assume we are talking about SAS3 SSDs! - changing from 6 to 12 gigs

I tried the save, it seems to save the config, but if I reload the config I just saved, the phy # always goes back to 10.

Strange.
I will check it tomorrow.

Are you start the tool with admin-permissions and do you try the windows compatibility-mode ?

Thanks for this thread I am able to upgrade my hgst ssds! I used the Linux version and I found that there I had to use "save pages" for the settings to survive power off.
Thank you guys!
