If you own a Samsung SSD and you didn’t make any firmware updates since you bought it, then its time to do that. The firmware updates can bring up new features, but mainly these will be focused in fixing some existing bugs and optimizing your SSD performance. To update the firmware, we will be using Samsung’s Magician software package. This tutorial will walk you through the process.

Before proceeding to below steps, make sure you download and install Samsung Magician app on your computer from this link. Once you have this app up and running continue to the following steps.

Step 1: First and most important thing is that you make a full or partial backup of your most important data from the SSD. Although not all firmware updates are destructive, some errors can happen that may result in lost or inaccessible data. Before performing firmware update Samsung Magician will also warn you to make a backup, so make sure you do that.
