    Perhaps just don't use Magician instead until they fix it? it is not needed....
    No, you misunderstand. Magician is showing a symptom of some other problem in communication with this drive on win10 1607. Attempting to enable "encrypted drive" by enabling bitlocker and you will put the system in a state where bitlocker is totally broken. The control panel won't even open and the manage-bde shows no drives even eligible for bitlocker.

    Exact same steps with exact same drive on Windows 10 1511 (or win 8) and you get a perfect "hardware encrypted" drive with bitlocker.

    So not just magician, but actually the firmware in the drive, is having all kinds of problems with win10 1607, the July anniversary update.

    I don't use Bitlocker now after issues with it on my Surface3 ( M$ replaced it cos even their techs couldn't fix it) , neither do I use the Samsung Magician SW as I Use Raid on my Desktops and it is Useless , and AFAIK Rapid Mode is a BenchMark Gimmick Mode only ?

    Certainly My friend wishes he hadn't use Magician on his Laptop , me either actually, since I was the one who got to reinstall everything for him :).

    850 Evo's are fast enough anyway , so I personally feel Magician is not worth the problems , I have experienced.
