Crucial Storage Executive 3.38 FlexCap?

I noticed a new feature in the latest version: "FlexCap". Can someone tell me more information about this and which devices are supported?

It's covered on page 25 of the manual: https://www.micron.com/~/media/documents/products/software/storage-executive-software/storageexecuti...

 

At a guess... it looks like an alternative to over provisioning?  Actually set in the drive firmware to change the drives size - rather than by partitioning?  Note that it wipes the drive to do this.

No problem.  I had no idea it existed until you asked so it was a useful question. Smiley Very Happy

Also, will FlexCap even work with a BX200? I'd really like to get to the bottom of Over Provisioning. I've got 1.98GB allocated at the end of my drive, is that fine or should I partition and format it? Windows 10.

I have just tried to open storage-executive-win-64.zip file with total commander, winrar and windows explorer and all of that worked with no problems.

 

I don't know if FlexCap would work with BX200, note however that all data is removed from the drive when you set the FlexCap capacity - take a look at this user guide.
