My drive firmware version does not look like any of the suggested ones. Should I proceed?
UHD Drive Tool tries to match your drive firmware with the best option found on our server. If it cannot find a firmware for the same drive, it will suggest something similar, but then updating to that will mean that you cross-flash. That is considered EXPERIMENTAL, don't do it if you don't want to take chances. It is possible that the cross-flashed firmware does not work as expected with your drive or does not work at all. We create a backup of your original firmware so you can flash back. Contact us if you experimented with cross-flash but ran into troubles.
Is there a validity for the Multi-Computer Lincense?
Sure, the validity of the Multi-Computer License is and only determined by the validity of your original licnese validity.
1). If your original license is a lifetime one, then don't worry, the Multi-Computer License shall never expire;
2). If your original license has a specific expiration date, then the Multi-Computer License shall also expire on that specific date;
3). Based on article 2), it is not recommeded to buy Multi-Computer License if your original license is about to expire soon. The better solution, in this case, is to renew the original license first, and then order the Multi-Computer License.
