Acronis AlignTool* - Intel® SSD Edition could be used if there are performance issues caused by misalignment of sectors and clusters after installing Windows* XP. You may want to verify if the partition is correctly aligned in order to determine if you need to install this tool; some web pages provide good recommendations about this topic, such as the one below.

Encryption on Intel® SSDs is ready to be used (on supported models); you just need to set up the Hard Drive password in BIOS. The following link may be of further help: /message/212662# 212662 212662
