Intel has promised a fix regarding to their 320-series SSD issues within two weeks.

Intel promised a fix for their 320-series SSD drives within two weeks via firmware update. MacWorld reported that the chipmaker has isolated the issue which saw a number of 320-series solid state drives fail after a power outage, resulting in a Bad Context 13x error. The firmware fix promises to avoid future problems that may occur. However, it will not recover the lost data for owners who are currently suffering from the said issue.

Reported a month ago, Intel was put in boiling water because of their slow response to the said problem. The chip maker acknowledged the issue in late July, and advised the current owners of such SSD drives to carefully shut down their computers. They also recommended frequent backups.

Apparently, the primary fix has fully wiped the SSD with a secure erase, destroying any data on the drive. Intel also replaced disks for a number of customers. As all the solutions involve losing every data on the disk, back-up becomes even more necessary nowadays. The firmware is currently in final validation testing based on a report from Intel. However, they did not announced a specific date for the release.
