    Fill in your system specs and you might be able to get an answer. Please don't just post them in the thread here, go to: https://www.tenforums.com/profile.php?do=extra

    The features you see/get, will depend on which SSD from Samsung you have.
    Read their Magician Software Installation Guide at the download page for more info.

    I tried Samsung Magician 5 about a month ago and it promptly told me that my Samsung 840 EVO 250GB drives (all 3 of them with the latest firmware) were UNSUPPORTED DRIVES. Huh? What's up with that?

    Needless to say, I'm back with version 4.9.7 and it looks like that's where I'll be staying.

    I was so terribly wrong. Everybody please read the release notes for Magician v5 before complaining ( I should have too :-) ).

    Anybody who has issues with new Magician, stick with the old one, if that works for you, until you upgrade your hardware to something that must use v5.

    Well, I had another try with Samsung Magician 5 in case something has changed since last month and I still get the same thing.

    Still can't figure it out. All 3 of my 840 EVO's are genuine and have the latest firmware. I have a dual boot with Windows 7 and Windows 10 and I get the same thing with both operating systems.

    Gone back to 4.9.7 again (with a Macrium Reflect image).

    RAPID Mode completely depends on how fast RAM you have. The numbers are correct.
