Intel SolidState Drive Toolbox – Manage and Optimise Intel SS Drives

The Intel SolidState Drive Toolbox is a collection of utilities to help you manage and optimise Intel SolidState Drives (SSDs). It currently supports Intel drives in the X18, X25, 3xx, 5xx and 7xx ranges. You may need the latest firmware to use the toolbox. Tools include the SSD Optimizer, which uses various techniques (including the TRIM command) to enhance the performance of Intel’s 34nm SSDs (it won’t work with 50nm models).

A SMART tool displays details about how the drive is being used: power cycles, power on time, media wearout indicator and other data that could alert you to an impending hardware failure.

And if you’re already worried about your drive’s reliability, then there are two diagnostic scans that could provide useful clues to its health. The Fast Scan takes three minutes and gives you a quick idea, while the Full Diagnostic Scan puts your drive through a complete workout, and delivers the most reliable report.
