    Default Using Diskpart on SSD ?

    I've been using my Intel X-25 80gb SSD for about 7 months now
    and for the most obvious reasons, wear and tear has reduced its write speeds from 80+ MB/s to a pathetic 50+mb/s. I've a ticket running with the Intel support center and they've run out of ideas as to what to do next.

    I've read an article from MaximumPC that they used Diskpart to "zero" the drive. Anyone here has any advise how to use diskpart? Or does it even work for that matter?

    Thanks in advance

    Diskpart is an old command line utility for manipulating hardrives. I don't see how it will do anything differently than you just deleting the partition yourself and then creating a new one or several depending on how you want to set the drive up?

    Good luck and keep us informed if you use it and have success.

    what even with Intel Ultility can't fix it?

    try PerfectDisk professional version, it's safe for SSD. I'm using it but TBH, I haven't check the drive performance lately though so I don't really know if my driver degrading or not. They have a free trial version to download just go take a look.http://www.perfectdisk.com/products/...nal/learn-more

    You're using Intel drive as for OS right, and are you doing a lot of install/uninstall software?

    Don't forget you have to optimized the drive almost every week because of Windows updating thing.
