    Over Provisioning on Samsung SSD (Magician)


    I left 50GB of my 500GB Samsung EVO 840 SSD at the end of the memory just for over provisioning. But it seems that they are not seen because they are allocated after my Fedora install.

    Any idea on how to work with this?

    manually set unallocated space via GParted in Linux.

    Or not worry about it. Manual overprovisioning is not required anyway.

    As long as you have plenty of free space you`re good :)

It seems that I can't enable Over Provisioning on my Samsung 500GB EVO. I got W10 x64 along with Ubuntu installed. I shrinked 50GB (10%of the SSD) from the partition and I still can't get this thing enabled. 111963 111964

Samsung has released a new version of Magician. All features work in Windows 10. TRIM is turned off so that Windows can perform that task.
