CES 2015 - Crucial announced a new 'SSD Toolbox' type software at CES 2015. Officially, the new software is called Crucial Storage Executive. The software installs on your system and is browser based for quick and easy management. It works with all SSDs back to the M500 model.

The interface looks really good and scales with resolution of your browser window. This is just the above the fold image on a 1920x1080 display with the browser set to 50% size.

The menu system was thought out well and shows you information on every drive in your system, not just the Crucial SSDs.

Once you expand the new on a Crucial SSD more option appear that make your Crucial SSD easier to manage. Options like firmware updates and sanitize turn complex tasks into just a few mouse click operations.

The software gives warnings when you are about to destroy data, a nice feature since not everyone will understand the full terminology when first using the software.

The firmware update feature also tells users what new features and enhancements will follow after a firmware update.

 

The Crucial Storage Executive software is available now for Crucial SSD owners and is backwards compatible with all Crucial SSD products back to the M500 model. When we get home from CES in a few days we'll update our SSD Toolbox Roundup article with the new software package from Crucial.
