Detailed Description

Overview

The Intel® Solid State Drive Toolbox is drive management software that allows you to:

  • View current drive information for Intel® Solid State Drives (Intel® SSDs), including:

    • Model number, capacity, and firmware version
    • Drive health
    • Estimated drive life remaining
    • SMART attributes (also available for hard disk drives and non-Intel SSDs)
    • Identify device information (also available for hard disk drives and non-Intel SSDs)

  • Optimize Intel SSD performance using Trim functionality.

Note: Trim feature intentionally disabled for Intel® Optane™ Memory - TRIM, or Optimize, is not necessary because of the Intel® Optane™ Memory Module architecture.

  • Optimize Intel SSD performance in RAID 0 using Trim functionality Intel® Rapid Storage Technology (Intel® RST) 11.0 or greater.

Note: Trim on RAID 0 is not supported on Windows 8*, Windows 8.1*, Windows® 10, or Windows Server 2012*:

  • Obtain proactive notifications of new Intel SSD Toolbox software versions for Windows 7*, Windows 8*, Windows 8.1*, and Windows® 10 systems.
  • Update the firmware on supported Intel SSDs.

Note: If you purchased your Intel SSD from an OEM, your firmware version may have a different naming. Contact your local OEM representative for the latest firmware revisions.

  • Run quick, full diagnostic scans to test read and write functionality.

Note: Diagnostic scans are intentionally disabled on Intel® Optane™ when system acceleration is enabled.

  • Check and tune system settings for optimal performance, power efficiency, and endurance.
  • View system information and hardware configuration, such as central processing unit (CPU), chipset, controller name, and driver versions.
  • Run Secure Erase on a secondary SATA Intel SSD in Windows 7*.

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. Refer to your system documentation for the BIOS settings and passwords.

If you need help disabling the drive password protection feature, contact Intel Customer Support.

For corporate customers who want to use the Intel® SSD Toolbox for their internal corporate use, they should download the Intel_SSD_Toolbox_v3_4_9.zip. While the software includes an embedded alternative license, the NSGSoftwareLicenseAgreement__EULAandCorporateEntity__2017.docx agreement included with the download applies.

Note: Firmware update for the Intel® SSD 750 Series on Windows 7 and 8.1 requires the NVMe* Drivers for Intel® SSDs. For Windows 10, the Microsoft Native NVMe* driver may be used.

What’s new?

This revision adds support for the Intel® Optane™ SSD 900P Series and a firmware update detection for the Intel® SSD DC P4500 and DC P4600 Series products. The latest firmware revision is QDV10150. The latest bootloader is QB1B0110.
