Hello

Recently I discovered some strange files on my new Intel SSDSC2CW120A310 Intel SSD 520 Series, 120Gb,( 2.5in SATA 6Gb/s, 25nm, MLC, 9.5mm, OEM Pack) . This files are:

from

--=={Intel_Trim_File_01}==--.bin



..... to

--=={Intel_Trim_File_20}==--.bin

The files above dissapear automatically after a while. In other days I just delete them and nothing wrong happened.
They are not hidden files, and yes they appear after I run Intel SSD Toolbox. I don't know they're size.

My motherboard is Gigabyte X58A-UD3R. I run Intel SSD Toolbox automaticaly once a week and it does not give me errors or something like that

Please can anyone tell me what are this files?


Thank you in advance

I think it is related to the process that the SSD uses to "keep itself clean", which is known as a trim function. Sounds like you are good to go, I would just leave them and let it manage itself, it won't be stealing drive space from you.

Or they might be due to a failure of the Intel SSD Toolbox Optimizer?
Anyway I'll still watch them untill I figured out...
