The Intel® Solid State Drive Toolbox (Intel® SSD Toolbox) is drive management software that allows you to:
Note: Trim feature intentionally disabled for Intel® Optane™ Memory - TRIM, or Optimize, is not necessary because of the Intel® Optane™ Memory Module architecture.
Note: Trim on RAID 0 is not supported on Windows 8*, Windows 8.1*, Windows® 10 or Windows Server 2012*
Note: If you purchased your Intel SSD from an OEM, your firmware version may have a different naming. Contact your local OEM representative for latest firmware revisions.
Note: Diagnostic scans are intentionally disabled on Intel® Optane™ when system acceleration enabled.
Note: Secure Erase functionality for SATA devices is blocked by the Windows 8*, Windows 8.1* and Windows 10* operating systems.
Note: Turn off drive password protection
Some systems provide the ability to password-protect their drives. If your system has password protection enabled, the Intel SSD may reject any requests from the host to update the firmware. Turn off the drive password protection prior to beginning the Firmware update process.
Although it varies from system to system, you can usually find the Drive Password Protection feature located in the BIOS. Consult your system documentation for the BIOS settings and passwords.
If you need help disabling the drive password protection feature, contact Intel Customer Support
