I have just noticed that i have these files too.
Mine are all dated 3rd December at 12:36. This was one day after I installed the new firmware.
I had the issue during flashing using AHCI where I was told it had not worked.
Message was edited by: jimh&# 13; I have now discovered that when I run the Intel SSD Toolbox and try to manually run the optimizer it creates some of these .bin files.&# 13; In my case the Optimizer fails because of an error creating optimizer files on the selected drive.
Thanks for the reply.
Well i took the risk and deleted those bin files and my windows 7 still booted fine.
Is their a way to tell if "TRIM" is running?
I deleted the bin files too and it all works fine here.
Testing TRIM seems a bit problematic, try this article for info.
I am having this exact same problem. I'm unable to complete a single run of the SSD toolbox on my Win 7 x64 system for my 80GB X25-M G2 drive with latest firmware. Can somebody provide insight into why this problem is occuring and how to work through it?
