    Would be nice if that worked on non Samsung SSD's. So jealous of your speeds in that pic you posted today. You can bet my next SSD will be Samsung lol.

    Yes that is correct Steve, I was just trying to explain WHY I use Samsung Magician.....nothing more than that.
    Rapid mode DOES speed up non M.2 drives quite a bit.
    I show little or no improvement is speed using Rapid Mode. What I do see is that every Windows 10 Build Update or CU will fail unless I remove SM. After Tomorrow I may put it back. But I am tired of removing it at least once a month if not sooner.. The lack of sped improvement may be due to the fact that I am running SATA III drives on a machine that only supports SATA II. But till my machine fails to boot, I will continue using it. I can play All Steam Games without issue and have a decent Video Card and Memory. I am considering getting a Samsung 860 1TB SSD drive as the price is somewhat reasonable.

    Hi,

    Magician will not support Rapid mode on an M.2 drive.
    According to Samsung's instructions it would support its 840EVO, 850 EVO and 860 EVO which are SATA drive available in M2 format.

    I read that, a few msgs back Josey, it must be your motherboard, and the lack of sata III support. I've never had to remove Magician for any Windows update....ever.
    Have you thought about just upgrading your MB Josey?? That would not cost that much. Just an idea....

    He might be in the same boat as me. If I chose to upgrade my motherboard, it would entail a new CPU, RAM as well. I have DDR3 and an older i7.

    Same here and it's seen all sort of IPs.

    And yeah, SATA II era MBs are such a bottleneck nowadays. I've a Dell Optiplex and an Acer laptop from that era. They're OK if you've got a lot of patience.....

    NvMe is not supported in Magician. Thats why you only see your Sata SSD's
    In other words you Can't run rapid mode on ANY M.2 style drive.

    Hi,

    But the M2 drives I mentioned are SATA drives not NVMe ones.
