    Samsung SSD Software and Windows 10


    I have sent the following questions to the Press Department of Samsung:

    Why has Samsung been so slow at issuing a Windows 10 Update for its SSD Software (Magician/Migration Software)? Does Samsung not feel any responsibility in keeping its software up-to-date, and responsibility towards its customers of these SSD? Windows 10 test versions, and actual release, have been available for quite some time now, why has Samsung not responded with a new update to SSD software, since enough time has been available, especially for such a major electronic company? Does Samsung view SSD (and relevant software) sales, and customers of these, as trivial or unimportant in its overall business strategy and economic interests? If not, why then has the update response been so exceedingly slow? How much longer do you expect your customers will have to wait before you finally get around to issuing an update, if at all? Does Samsung, as a major electronic company, not feel any shame at such a lame response, and generally bad treatment, or snubbing of its customers? What is Samsungs official position on this?

    If I get an answer I will post it here

    :)
     

  2. SATA drive can't Optimize since Windows 10 upgrade (from 7) - Non-AHCI NVIDIA Controller

    I use Samsung Magician with my Samsung EVO 850 on Windows 10. Why do you say they're incompatible?

    What is the "freeware" software that you found that could optimize?

  3. Windows 10 upgrade fails "Cannot access system reserved partition" on cloned SSD using Samsung Data Migration

    I followed the exact same path, installing Samsung ssd's on 2 systems running 8.1 several weeks ago. Then when updating the ssd's to Windows 10, the upgrades failed in the same way, with the same error, "Can not access system reserved partition." At this
    point I removed the ssd's and replaced the traditional drives, updated 8.1 with the latest updates, and then installed Windows 10 with no problems on the old drives.

    With 10 running fine on the old drives, I then tried to use Samsung Data Migration software to again clone the ssd's, but the Samsung software, now running on Windows 10, would not recognize the ssd drives. (This was true even after I used the Samsung software
    to create the bootable DOS cd, and run through the process of restoring the ssd to original factory shipped status.)

    I was able to use EaseUS free software to clone one of the disks, where I was copying a 1TB traditional drive to a 1TB ssd drive. But the EaseUS software failed on the second system, where I was trying to clone a 750GB traditional drive to a 500GB ssd drive.
    This was true even after I modified the partitions so that there was slightly more than 250GB unallocated space on the end of the 750GB drive. So, still looking for a fix for the second system.

    Have you tried version 4.7 that was just released? I have not yet tried it as my Windows 10 system is down at the moment.

    @xyz - This is always a problem with ALL manufacturers whenever a new iteration of an OS is released and/or even when things such as new interface standards or chipset appear on the market. This is perfectly normal and is definitely not unique to Samsung. In the meantime all anyone can ever do is find ways to workaround the issue until the manufacturer release updates that are proven to work. Sometimes a third-party software release resolves the issue. For older components new updates are often never released...

    version 4.7 works on Windows 10 but does not enable rapid without major hacks.I believe the OP was concerned about migration software. No idea on that

    I have an 850 EVO (500GB) that I'm using on Win 10. I don't have the Samsung Magician installed (never had it installed when this system was Win 8.1). Everything works well the way it is.

    What doesn't work with the software? I have 4.6 running in Windows 10 for my 840 Evo. It even detected a firmware update and applied it for me. Seems to be running fine for me.

    All I've gathered is that Rapid Mode doesn't work under Windows 10. Since, from my perspective, Rapid Mode is mere snake oil or (to be less controversial) offers me no perceivable benefit, it bothers me not in the least. I went ahead and updated from 4.6 to 4.7 - just because I could. No impact, I don't run it in startup, I only fire it up to check the benchmark out of curiosity or check if there's a firmware update.

  10. I enabled Rapid Mode when I was running 8.1 and my benchmarks never changed. If that's all that doesn't work, I'd call it a non-issue for me.
