    Just want to thank everyone for all your help,up and running with all drives without problems. Set my other two sata drives to AHCI, guess this should have been done when I installed windows10. The Sata drives are for backup and storage,only power them up when needed. Have switches on front of computer to control power to the drives,why have it spinning if not needed. Still running my Samsung on Sata2 port because of being older system,but see a little difference in performance over sata drives. Maybe it time to push forward on new build.Did order a Sata lll pci express card for my system,not sure if it will help any. Will post back after I install it.

    Yeah, usually AHCI is enabled before hand and drivers are installed before the OS. To get the best out of what you have with SATA II it's best to have it enabled. Not sure understanding parts on powering up & down the SATA drives, no need to do it for a SSD, a HDD you can use settings in Power Options to shut down drive after certain time rather then what you are doing.

    Always use Samsung on new system, so not a loss there. Welcome, good luck on whatever you choose to do from here.

    Hello jds63
    Power Options to shut down drive? Are you telling me if I have 3 hard drives in a computer I can power down two of them in options. I learn something every day and want to learn a lot more, can you explain this better.

    Yes, believe it works for spinners (HDD) only. Set from default of 20 min. to never spin down. I do not like idea of spinning up and down i think does more damage then just leaving this option set to off or never.

    In control panel select Power Options then select change your Plan settings, see Change Advanced Power settings choose that to get here.
