Flash Back Utilities for my XPR/XPR2.

 

The flashback utilities are used to restore an existing powerstation to its original factory settings. The flashback utility will erase the contents on the card and restore the necessary powerstation files. To restore your application, you will need to download your project using Machine Shop Toolbar.

Things to keep in mind:

1. You MUST have a compact flash card reader in order to flash the card back to factory defaults. A compact flash card reader can be purchased from a local electronics store, Best Buy or Wal-Mart (where available).

2. The flash back utility WILL erase everything from the card. It is critical to make sure you have a back up of your application PRIOR to flashing back.

3. The flash back utilizes MUST be run on Win XP. On Win7, it'll complete but not restore the files on the CF card.
