Step 1: Enable Storage Executive
This free software helps your SSD become even faster and allows the drive to get periodic performance updates. On the computer you installed the SSD in, go to crucial.com/se.
Step 2: Click on one of the “download” buttons
Download times will vary based on your internet connection, but average 1-3 minutes.
Step 3: Install and run Storage Executive
Click on the file you just downloaded. If it doesn’t open right away, double-click on it, then save it to your desktop and open it from there. Follow the onscreen prompts and instructions to install and start using the software.
Step 4: Enable Momentum Cache and make your SSD even faster
In the left menu, click on Momentum Cache. Enabling this feature forces your computer to restart, which is normal. The feature doesn’t work with RAID arrays.
