    Hi folks, got four HGST 8TB HC320 drives I'm putting in a RAID box. Two of them have an older firmware (410) and two of them have the latest firmware (460).

    I have downloaded the 460.bin file to update the hard drives but have not been able to determine which tool I can use to do the firmware update.

    One of the differences between the firmware revisions seems to be that the 460 firmware allows formwatting with a block size of 4K which I owuld prefer, but the 410 revision is limited to 512b.

    I'm not sure if there are any othe differences but generally I feel better about RAID0 when all drives have the same firmware.
