On Monday Intel released an firmware upgrade for the X25-M solid state drive (SSD). Yesterday, the company pulled the update.

The software package, called SSD Toolbox, was designed to monitor and manage performance and health of the X25-M drive on the Windows 7 OS. However, the firmware update has now been pulled.

Here's the reason according to Intel:

"We have been contacted by users with issues with the 34-nanometer Intel SSD firmware upgrade and are investigating. We take all sightings and issues seriously and are working toward resolution. We have temporarily taken down the firmware link while we investigate."

No word from Intel as to when updated firmware will be ready.

If you're downloaded the update and not installed it, might be a good idea to hold off for now.
