Drive Information

What's the story morning glory? At the start of the program, the Toolbox gives us drive information and you can even update your firmware from this page.

 

 

Overprovisioning

Everyone seems to be talking about further overprovisioning (OP) consumer SSDs these days. Corsair makes it easy to add additional OP space to your Corsair SSD. I did find you need a partition and drive letter on the drive already or the function will not work. With our drive ready we just slid the slider to the right and added an additional 64GB of OP space. You can use the slider to dial in the exact amount of additional OP you want.

 

 

SMART Status

There are a number of SMART readers on the market, but having the feature built-into your toolbox is a nice addition.

 

 

Disk Clone

Corsair is still working on the Disk Cloning feature, hopefully it's ready by Computex.

 

 

Optimize

Too bad we didn't have this easy TRIM tool a year ago. You can use the TRIM tool two ways. At the bottom is a one-button solution to send the TRIM command to the drive. At the top you can schedule a TRIM command to take place at a set interval and time.

 

 

Secure Wipe

Sometimes you just want to say forget it and start all over. We call it secure erase, Corsair calls it secure wipe.
