Corsair SSD Toolbox

Corsair's SSD Toolbox released in May of 2013 and not a lot has changed to the interface since then. The Corsair software is functional, but lacks the Web 2.0 feel. It reminds me of the early days of the internet when websites were built with Microsoft Publisher in pure HTML. Don't let the look fool you though, this software allows you to easily clone an existing disk and has other impressive features as well.

 

The start screen gives us quite a bit of information right from the start.

If you already have an existing partition on the drive, you can increase the overprovisioned space with a slider and start button. The Corsair Neutron GTX SSD we used already has 32GB of OP space allocated so the software tells us we don't need to increase the OP.

Corsair takes SMART data to the next level by giving it a pass / fail designation. This simplifies looking over SMART data information.

The disk clone function is as easy as anyone can mark it. You simply choose what drive you want your C drive cloned to and hit the button to start the process.

Scheduled TRIM optimizations are possible with the Corsair SSD Toolbox. You can select the times and frequency to send a TRIM command to the Corsair SSD.

Corsair uses a feature called 'Secure Wipe' instead of Secure Erase, although the two are the same.

The software allows you to run the function, but it's not clear if it actually works in Windows 8 and beyond.
