Get a comprehensive real-time overview of system status, capacity, interface, health, updates, and more.


Every now and then we recommend you update your SSD's firmware to enhance performance and stability. Now you can easily update right here in SSD Utility.

Health Monitoring

Check in on how much life is left in your SSD, find out if your SSD is hooked up to the suitable ports, and set in the correct modes to achieve high performance.

This feature allows you to fine-tune your SSD. May quickly adjust the over-provisioning to enhance long-term performance.

OS Tuner

Tune the way your OS interacts with your SSD with this tool. Select one of three modes (Reliability, Performance, or Capacity) or customize the settings yourself.


Support becomes efficient with the Save Support Package feature. Also, if you need help figuring out settings or troubleshooting an issue, SSD Utility links right to the support contact pages.

This is a maintenance release of SSD Utility, with the following enhancements:

Change indication of "Health"

Bug fixes and reliability enhancements

Known Issues

RC100 and RD400 are partially supported on Windows 7. Users should use Windows 10 or Bootable Tools to perform firmware update and to access the other features of SSD Utility not available in Windows 7.

On Windows 7 SMART data is not available therefore "Value not available" is always displayed regardless of the actual health of your drive. You will need to find an alternative method to read the health of your drive if you are concerned.

On Windows 8.1 the RC100 is not supported.

On Windows 8.1 when the RD400 is in use and its "Health" is less than 0%, a message "Value not available" will be displayed. This means you need to replace your SSD as soon as possible.

TL100 Firmware update may fail on Windows 7 if the Intel RSTe driver is installed. To work around this, use bootable SSD Utility to perform the update.

TL100 benchmark results may degrade if re-run immediately after a previous benchmark. Workaround is to wait a minute or two before re-running the benchmark.

On some PCs it is impossible to perform secure-erase: this happens if the PC BIOS issues SECURITY FREEZE LOCK the drive, and does not implement the suspend/resume cycle used to unfreeze it. Workaround is to use the secure erase feature in the BIOS if there is one, otherwise to perform secure erase on another PC.

On some laptops with dual Intel & NVIDIA graphics, SSD Utility may crash. This can be fixed by updating the Intel & NVIDIA drivers.

The mouse cursor is not displayed when using Bootable SSD Utility with a DisplayPort connection with a GeForce 1070. Workaround is to boot in safe mode.

Due to a bug in version 2.2.2645, when using the update feature from within the application, the update may fail with a message "Error installing." Workaround is to manually the latest version from

Secure Erase will produce an error if the target drive is in use (for example, drive is being read or written to).

The text on the Setup - Notifications pane "Suppress unsafe power loss alerts" is not clickable unlike other text in this area.

In a rare corner case, the password hint may become corrupted. While the password hint is corrupted, the password remains, and the XS700 can be locked/unlocked.
