    Samsung 850 Pro SSD installed - Optimisation not available?


    I acquired a Samsumng 850 Pro anc copied my HDD to it.

    Booted with new SSD installed, and ran "winsat formal"

    Rebooted and went to Drive C:/Properties/Tools and selected "Optimise"

    As you can see it says I can't optimise the drive!

    Samsung Magician says Trim is enabled, and fsutil says:
    Code:
    C:\Windows\system32>fsutil behavior query disableDeleteNotify
    NTFS DisableDeleteNotify = 0  (Disabled)
    ReFS DisableDeleteNotify = 0  (Disabled)
    Confused! I thought that would allow SSD optimisation?

    Hi,
    I'm guessing you optimized the hdd before moving files to the ssd ?

    Something's wrong as you should be able to Optimize that drive regardless of whether you copied contents from a HDD drive or not. BTW I have a Samsung 850 Pro so I know this to be true. Something is wrong there.

    Can you post a screenshot of your Disk Management?

    Thanks

    Yes, I de-fragged the HDD before I copied it.

    Here's the screen shot of Disk Management:

    Ok, see this post first to see if that solves the issue - Optimization not available suddenly on SSD. Basically you need to install the RST drivers for your board.

    If that doesn't work, see this article - Fix "Optimization Not Available" in Optimize Drives in Windows.

    BTW, just curious, why do you have so much unallocated space on that drive?

    Latest Intel RST driver set fixed the problem

    KUDOS to you sir!

    Unallocated space - just copied from 200GB to 256GB and haven't reorganised yet!
