Errant update borks Samsung 850 Pro SSDs


"RMAing the drive means all your data is lost"

Things may have changed since last time I looked, but IIRC applying new firmware to an SSD loses all your data anyway...

Does anyone know what the new firmware was supposed to fix? Did these guys need to do an update? Whatever happened to "if it ain't broke, don't fix it"?

Edit: Looks like I was wrong on both counts!

Samsung recommends all firmware fixes are applied.
