Intel® SSD Toolbox

Intel® SSD Toolbox

So your new computer has one of those fancy-schmancy new Solid State Drives (SSD) instead of a traditional Hard Disk Drive (HDD). But you are wondering if you need to keep the Intel® SSD Toolbox installed.

Quick answer: YES! Leave it installed! Leave it configured to run about once per week.

If your system has a SSD instead of a HDD, you would be very wise to leave this installed. The way a SSD functions, this utility will optimize the SSD every so often, about once a week is good. Otherwise your nice zippy SSD (roughly 5x quicker than a HDD) will deteriorate in performance over time (about a year), and become much slower than even an old HDD. Put another way, this utility REPLACES the need to defragment like you may have done with a HDD.
