Flashing your drive
-------------------
FLASH.BAT automatically makes a complete backup of your firmware system

* To FLASH a drive, it must be in Mode B and a "Windows Drive Letter"!
* Then just run FLASH.BAT from "Command Prompt" while running windows.

* The new FLASH needs two things, the "Windows Drive Letter", and FOUR
  numbers for the BACKUP directory, use a new unique number like 1572:

  - This is used to make your BACKUP directory!

  - For Example: FLASH.BAT H 1572

  - Will cause the FLASH after running to have, a BACKUP directory
    "X13-1572.OPA" and the program will store FIVE firmware files:

    ---- key.bin   ---- DRIVE KEY /// DRIVE KEY
    ---- was.bin   ---- Your drive before FLASH
    ---- gdrXX.bin ---- The untouch original fw
    ---- modXX.bin ---- The patched Xtreme13 fw
    ---- now.bin   ---- Your drive after FLASH!

  - Where the XX in the above names will be the version of your Hitachi

* Program will not start unless a BACKUP is correctly made and stored!

* Flash will auto-detect your firmware build of your Hitachi drive.

* You can flash over any version of firmware including "f900" or "v1.1"

* System will check flashed firmware, and redo until 100% completed.

* Once you get the PASS / DONE line, you can shut-down the system.


Restoring your drive
--------------------
RESTORE.BAT automatically restores your drive back to original state

* To RESTORE a drive, it must be in Mode B and a "Windows Drive Letter"!
* Then just run RESTORE.BAT from "Command Prompt" while running windows.

* The new RESTORE does not need any backup, it will 100% restore your
  drive back to "ORIGINAL" state as long as it is visible in Windows!

* Program will not start unless it detects the version of your Hitachi!

* You can restore any drive, even "v1.1" or "f900" or your own hacks.

* System will check flashed firmware, and redo until 100% completed.

* Once you get the PASS / DONE line, you can shut-down the system.
