SSD Utility Release Notes

Version 2.2.2645 December 28, 2016

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

  • Support for TL100 SSDs
  • Recalibration of graphical temperature display
  • Fix VX500 secure erase
  • Improvements to translated UI text
  • Fix creation of bootable SSD Utility onto blank USB drive (Linux®)
  • Prevent overprovisioning of dynamic disks
  • Bugfix: show local update file with no .extension
  • Fix application shutdown in 32-bit Windows®
  • Benchmark optimization
Known Issues
  • Firmware update of TL100 may fail. Workaround is to cycle the drive power (shutdown your system, switch off, then switch on again), then retry the firmware update.
  • 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.

Version 2.1.2542 July 11, 2016

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

  • Support for XG3 and VX500 SSDs
  • Recalibration of graphical temperature display
  • Updated Toshiba branding requirements
Known Issues
  • Cannot revert overprovisioning of dynamic disk. If the SSD is formatted as a dynamic disk, the overprovisioning can be increased, but not decreased in SSD Utility. The workaround is to extend the volume in Windows® Disk Management.
  • Local update file not shown in dialog pane (Linux®). When updating firmware from a local file, the file select dialog will not display a file without an .extension. The workaround is to rename any such file with a .bin extension.
  • Cannot create bootable SSD Utility onto blank USB drive (Linux®). Depending on the contents of the USB stick, the "Create Bootable SSD Utility" feature may fail with status "File system operation failed". The workaround is to download the bootable image and write it to the USB drive with dd.
