There is nothing that the end user can do, in the normal operation of the scanner, that would cause the loss of upgrade keys. As mentioned, the keys are not stored on the SD card. Card swaps and resetting the scanner are considered normal operation.will I loose my upgrade keys if my sd card ever goes bad or if I reset the scanner
You would not need to load the firmware. When there is a firmware update, Sentinel copies the file(s) to the card. But when the scanner restarts, the firmware files are written to the scanner, and deleted from the card.Hopefully this is not off topic ?
I would like to make a back up SD card. can I format a new card in the SDS200 ?
Or would I just load the new card and download the current firmware and database ?
