To upgrade a Data Drive to its next rarity, it needs to be inserted into the orange glowing slot on an Uplink terminal. When multiple Data Drives are in the Prospectors inventory, the highest rarity one will be selected. Once inserted the Data Drives current and next rarity are shown on the top left corner and the main terminal screen can be interacted with to start the upgradeprocess. During that process the antenna emits a loud noise and a colored light corresponding to the targeted rarity. While the terminal shows a progressbar in percent, the actual upgradetime depends on the rarity of the Data Drive. Removing the Data Drive during an upgrade stops the process and leaves it at the rarity before the upgrade was started. When the upgrade is completed the Prospector can choose to instantly start the next upgrade or remove the Data Drive and take it with them.
