If you just downloaded the Toolbox and not the firmware update the update does not work properly as the plain toolbox is not linked to the firmware file to be downloaded. After the download is complete unzip the folder and run the Toolbox from that folder. The update should work properly at that point. It is recommended to reboot the computer after running the update if the firmware version does not change on the initial section of the Toolbox. Sign up to join this community.

Be warned: with ANY low-level tool you run the risk of destroying all data on that drive though it is very very very small of a chance; it may be more accurate to say it's a non-zero chance than to say you're Same problem here.
