    Toolbox update


      Hello SSD community,


      Intel is continuing to work on a solution to this issue and expects to release a new version of the Intel® SSD Toolbox by the end of Dec 2009.

      Microsoft* alerted Intel to an issue with the Intel® SSD Optimizer tool and Intel is working on a fix to the issue.  After the SSD Optimizer is run, the SSD Optimizer renders all previously set Windows* system restore points unusable. However, user data is not affected. The SSD Optimizer tool is part of the Intel® SSD Toolbox (ver 1.1).

      This applies only to users who meet all four criteria below:


      • Use Windows*7 or Vista and
      • Use the System Protection feature which sets system
        restore points (enabled by default in Windows*7 and Vista*) and
      • Have installed 02HA or 02HD firmware and
      • Have used Intel SSD Optimizer (which was available
        from intel.com from 10/26 to 11/4).

      A workaround for this issue and additional details are available here.
      Intel will give regular updates on this issue.

          Thanks for the update, Alan.  Better safe than sorry. It's also smart PR to keep the community informed like this on a regular and timely basis. Sometimes patience is as short as the read time on a Mainstream drive. I am happy because I am running Windows 7 and I seem to have TRIM enabled, so life is good for now. I admit that I just grin when I start an application and it instantly appears. However we early adopters do like to tweak for perfection, so I look forward to what the Toolbox might enable me to do. Thanks for the work you folks do.
