Windows 10: How to enable Rapid mode on Samsun 850 Pro

    How to enable Rapid mode on Samsun 850 Pro


    Quick steps:
    1. Remove any versions of Samsung Magician later than 4.5 (inclusive)
    2. Download an d install Samsung Magician 4.4
    3. Start it, enable Rapid Mode, and reboot
    4. (If desired - I did this) remove Samsung Magician from Startup group

    Longer explanation:

    Originally I did a clean install of Build 10240 on a brand new 850 Pro. The disk that came with the drive was Magician 4.5, so I pitched that and downloaded and installed Magician 4.6. After seeing that it did not allow enabling Rapid Mode I started doing some research and found several posts that said Magician 4.4 did run on Win10 and did support rapid mode.

    So I used Uninstaller Pro (which I use to uninstall everything) to uninstall Magician 4.6, found a place to download Magician 4.4, installed it, and rebooted. Here is my first screenshot showing my 850 Pro:

    You can see the 850 Pro is recognized A-OK, but rapid mode was not enabled. To see what difference it might make I ran the internal benchmark:

    This is the benchmark results before enabling Rapid mode. After that I enabled Rapid mode, rebooted, and ran the same benchmark again. Here are those results:

    It's pretty clear Rapid mode is a good thing to do and Magician 4.4 allows it to work.

    @bbinnard,

    How stable is it running for you now? I had BSODs during the Preview running RAPID. Actually Magician would crash a lot first(on an older version) and after a few times NUKE the4 system, so I got the latest version(4.6) and kept RAPID off. Also if it is running stable please give a link to SM 4.4.

    Rapid mode is just an aggressive filesystem cache right?

    So it really only accelerates reads the second time you open a file, and makes buffer flush times longer and more dangerous on systems without a battery backup.

    Cliff - it's only been several hours, but I have rebooted a few times and run different things. No problems at all.

    I lost the link to 4.4, but just google "samsung magician 4.4 download" an you'll find several places. I got it from one of those software distribution sites.

    Sounds good, maybe my earlier problems were because the preview didn't have all the permissions that the finished product does.

    Good counter, and a UPS is a good investment

    Thanks again for the update
