My PC disk drives are currently using the drivers that came with Win10. I'm trying to find better drivers if they exist. I'm experiencing some minor performance problems.
I have a Samsung 840 Pro and a Western Digital WD1002faex-00z3a0.
I can find no drivers for the Samsung - just the Samsung Driver Installer, and the doc for the Installer says it support on the 950.
I can find some Win8 drivers for the WD drive on brand-x driver sites, but no Win10 drivers and nothing from WD itself. On one site I saw the comment that WD Win10 drivers are available only by using the WD Driver Installer.
I would like to get drivers from the device manufacturers rather than copies with unknown pedigrees, but I really don't like the idea of installing vendor bloatware in order to get the drivers. Should I just live with the drivers that came with Win10?
I wouldn't be going down this path if it weren't for an odd performance problem - slow reading of a bunch of files by one program. This problem did not exist until I did a clean install of Win10. I seem to have traded a problem with stability for a problem with performance. (On another PC the clean install fixed the disk performance problem, but that was with different disk drives.)
