I have two computers with Win.XP and Intel SSDs. I use the Intel Toolbox to clean them. Question #1 is, will the Intel Toolbox work on any other brands? Question #2 does any other SSD manufacturer have their own toolbox? And question #3 is can you use the Toolbox with Windows 7?
(1) The Intel tool box is for Intel SSDs, and even intel's toolbox does not support all Intel's SSD as the G1 is not supported.
(2) Most other brands also have a tool box, or a variation of.
(3) Depending on the operation to be performed, the operation may or may not be allowed under windows. For example with a secure erease can not do if operation is on the boot disk. Some of the toolboxs run under linux (Bootable CD) for performing a firmware update and for secure erease.
