Included here are the most popular Intel® Solid State Drive (Intel® SSD) tools. Unless otherwise noted, these tools span processor product families.

Follow these recommendations before doing any operating system upgrades, updates, data migration, drive optimization, or firmware updates:

  • Back up your data. We recommend backing up all files regularly.
  • Make sure that your system remains on when running any type of software optimization, data migration, or firmware update.
  • If you are using a laptop, make sure the laptop is plugged in with an AC adapter.
  • If you suspect your Intel® SSD is failing, power the SSD down, allowing it to complete any background tasks. Do not unplug or remove the SSD while it is still on.
