    Just confirming that the latest factory firmware for the ASUS BW-16D1HT is not encrypted being that it was released in March of 2019, before factory provided firmware has been encrypted. If I try installing nonencrypted MK firmware on a drive manufactured with new, encrypted firmware without checking the Enc box, could that damage the drive, or would the update refuse to load and I only get an error message? Also, what would happen if I check the Enc box when the factory loaded firmware is not encrypted?

    The flash just fails. Nothing else happens.
