Knowledgebase Article

Symptom
Intel® X-25M 160GB Solid-State Drive shows disk is full even if OS and few programs are installed on the drive. Remaining capacity on the disk is still around 60 MB.

Solution
  1. Show all hidden/system files in OS.
  2. Check for any huge file size greater than 3 GB and with filenames like "--=={Intel_Trim_File_xx}==--.bin".
  3. Delete these files.

This files are generated after running Optimization Tool on the SSD Toolbox but failed, as a workaround, deleting them will free up the remaining capacity on disk.
