LC Technology updates its Solid State Doctor utility suite 

The Solid State Doctor 3.0 includes overprovisioning, cloning from one SDD to another and TRIM support for Windows 7 and 8 users. To extend SSD lifespan, the new version allocates part of the SSD’s flash memory to the flash storage processor, which the company says will optimize memory management functions.

In addition, the updated version allows users to clone an entire SSD device. This means that users can quickly copy all data to a new SSD before their current SSD reaches the end of its lifespan, preventing any loss of productivity or information. LC Technology also included TRIM support, to ensure that SSD drives are able to write new data to storage spaces where data has been deleted. The hope is that users can schedule TRIM to run automatically and thereby preserve valuable disc space. Users can also return their SSD to a raw state using Solid State Doctor’s Secure Wiping capability. As well, its Drive Self-Tests allow users to take advantage of the manufacturer’s diagnostics tests, which are built into the device but are typically unavailable to consumers.

“Computers users now overwhelmingly prefer SSD drives to standard hard disk drives (HDDs) because they boot rapidly, launch applications instantaneously and generally provide snappier performance,” said David Zimmerman, president of LC Technology. “However, SSD storage space and lifespans are inferior to HDDs, so our goal with Solid State Doctor and this update in particular is to help consumer get the most out of their SSD and prevent data loss.”

Solid State Doctor is available on Windows 7, Windows 8 and pre-Windows 7 environments, as a commercial or OEM solution.
