I have just noticed that i have these files too.
Mine are all dated 3rd December at 12:36. This was one day after I installed the new firmware.
I had the issue during flashing using AHCI where I was told it had not worked.
Message was edited by: jimh I have now discovered that when I run the Intel SSD Toolbox and try to manually run the optimizer it creates some of these .bin files. In my case the Optimizer fails because of an error creating optimizer files on the selected drive.
Thanks for the reply.
Well i took the risk and deleted those bin files and my windows 7 still booted fine.
Is their a way to tell if "TRIM" is running?
What is everyone talking about changing in the bios "AHCI". is that only for RAID or Single Drives?
I am having this exact same problem. I'm unable to complete a single run of the SSD toolbox on my Win 7 x64 system for my 80GB X25-M G2 drive with latest firmware. Can somebody provide insight into why this problem is occuring and how to work through it?
