The EDGE Boost SSD comes with a powerful AES hardware encryption chip. When
enabled, the SSD becomes impossible to access without knowing the password.
Even if the SSD is physically removed from your system, all stored data is invisible
and secure. Not all systems support drive encryption (also called the ATA Security
Password)—please consult your system’s user manual to ensure this feature is
available.
You must first enable the drive encryption to use it. Enabling this function varies
from system to system, but the following is a typical example
(IMPORTANT: Your
SSD will be permanently inaccessible if you forget or lose your password!):
1. After installing the SSD, access your computer’s BIOS during system startup.
2. Select the “Security” option.
3. Select the “Password” option.
4. Select the option displayed as “Hard Disk Password” or similar for the Boost SSD.
5. Create and reconfirm a password. After complete, the encryption function is
active. You will need to input your password every time you start your computer to
access the SSD.
1. Ensure all power sources, including the wall power adapter and
battery, are disconnected from your system.
2. Disassemble your computer’s casing and locate the hard drive.
3. Remove the old hard drive and replace with the Boost SSD. If the old
hard drive has any hardware attached to it, remove it and attach to
the Boost SSD in the same manner.
4. After the install is complete, reassemble the computer to its original
state and restore power.
5. Power on the system and ensure that the system’s BIOS recognizes
the Boost SSD. Note: You will need to format the SSD before use if
you plan to use it as a secondary storage drive.
PRECAUTIONSUSING THE ENCRYPTION FUNCTIONWARRANTYThis SSD is backed by a 5-year warranty.
