has a ton of items and resources to collect and upgrade. One of these is the Data Drive. Drives can be found on the planet's surface or purchased from the ICA Market but are pretty much worthless until they've been upgraded.
These common Data Drives can be upgraded tier by tier by inserting them into an Uplink Tower on Fortuna III. This guide goes into detail on where the Uplink Towers are located and the upgrade process.
The Cycle: Frontier Data Drive & Uplink Towers
There are two Uplink Towers on the primary map although you can also head over to the Comms Tower in the West.
Each tier takes 30 seconds longer than the last, and this means getting an uncommon from a common takes only 30 seconds, while upgrading an epic to a legendary takes 2 minutes.
Overall, it takes 5 minutes to upgrade from a common to a legendary, but if you're only doing it for the job, you only require the 3 minutes to reach epic.
Even so, the time spent waiting for the upload to complete and your shiny new drive to pop out is dangerous. During the process, the antennas linked to the station will signal to any surrounding players, often causing them to converge on your location.
Once upgraded, you can sell them for far more Krypto Marks than they cost to buy, and the rare variety can also be turned in for the level 12 ICA faction job, rewarding you with 260 FP, 31 ICA Scrip, and a nice 19,000 Krypto Marks.
