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.
