TweakTown's Complete SSD Toolbox Software Roundup

By: Chris Ramseyer | Editorials in Storage | Posted: Oct 10, 2014 1:03 pm

OCZ Storage Solutions Toolbox




The OCZ Storage Solutions Toolbox received a makeover around the time Toshiba took the reins. The previous version looked similar to Kingston's Toolbox. The functions are nearly identical, though. On the initial screen, you select which drive you want to know about. The model, capacity, serial number, firmware version and WWN number are all shown.




The tools tab presents options for updating the firmware on a drive and an option to send a TRIM command to the selected drive.




The security tab allows users to secure erase the selected SSD. Again, this may not work on Windows 8. The software will allow you to click the button, but we're not convinced it actually works on newer Windows.




The details tab allows the user to see the identify data and the SMART data.




The identify device data screen.




The SMART data screen.


OCZ's Toolbox does not work with the new AMD Radeon R7 drives, but OCZ did release a version that does. The AMD Toolbox version is identical to the OCZ version, but it does work with AMD SSDs and has an AMD themed color scheme.
