Intel X-25M Solid-State Drive 160 GB - Disk Full Error

Knowledgebase Article

Intel X-25M 160 GB Solid-State Drive shows disk is full, even when only the operating system, and few programs are installed on the drive. Remaining capacity on the disk is still around 60 MB.


  1. Show all hidden/system files in OS.
  2. Check for file sizes greater than 3 GB, with file names like "--=={Intel_Trim_File_xx}==--.bin".
  3. Delete these files.

These files are generated when the Optimization Tool in the Intel® SSD Toolbox fails. As a workaround, deleting these files frees up the remaining capacity on the disk.
