Recently built a new PC using Intel 750 (400 GB, PCI-E slot version) as boot drive, with Windows 10 Enterprise.
It was detected automatically by the BIOS on the Asus Z170 Deluxe motherboard, and the install was unremarkable.
All running well, however I've now also installed Intel SSD toolbox, and it's not reporting any SMART data:
I attempted to install the latest driver by using the SetupNVME.exe that came with Intel Windows NVMe driver 220.127.116.117 x32-x64.zip, but this made no difference.
Can anyone shed any light on this lack of SMART data from the toolbox? I haven't found any other utilities that recognise the drive at all, so I was hoping the Intel SSD Toolbox would show me these details.
Since the Intel® SSD Toolbox is not reporting SMART information for your Intel® sSD 750 Series, you might want to try these recommendations:
- Make sure you are using the most recent version of https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/18455/Intel-Solid-State-Drive-Toolbox Intel® SSD Toolbox.
- Update the Firmware of your Intel® SSD 750 Series. The latest version is available with the https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/23931/Intel-Solid-State-Drive-Data-Center-Tool Intel® SSD Data Center Tool.
- If the issue persists, it is possible that SMART monitoring is disabled in your Motherboard. To confirm this, please contact the http://www.intel.com/support/oems.htm Computer Manufacturer Support and check the advanced configuration in the BIOS for any setting that may have disabled SMART.
Thank you for this.
I did have the latest SSD Toolbox, and I've successfully updated the firmware:
... and now I'm getting SMART data (attached), but not a health report:
Would appreciate any further suggestions.
I have the same problem with the software not reporting the health or life remaining. This was working, but stopped ever since I up dated the firmware. Have you tried to click on the other drives then go back and click on C:\ ? I tried and then it reported the health an etc. But you have to do this every time you run the tool box.
Yes, that does the trick. So simple that I didn't think to try it
PS, Intel chaps... that's a bug in fact... care to fix? You know, call the RefreshData method on startup as well as on demand?
Have the same issue, no smart information available although I am sure it was there before last year. Using SSD Toolobox 3.3.4 which reports drive as having latest firmware. Tried the datacenter tool but will not show drive.
