Detailed Description

The Intel® Solid State Drive Toolbox (Intel® SSD 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 and Performance Boost feature.

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

NOTE:    Performance Boost feature is available for the Intel® SSD 660p Series and Intel® Optane™ Memory H10 and Solid State Storage devices.

  • 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 latest firmware revisions.

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

NOTE:    Diagnostic scans are intentionally disabled on Intel® Optane™ SSDs 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. Consult your system documentation for the BIOS settings and passwords.

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