Windows 7: Let Samsung Magician optimize SSD?

It seems that Samsung no longer have the user manual that was available when I bought mine.

You could select one of the options on your screen shot, such as Maximum Reliability or one of the others. This will probably require the system to reboot to make the change.

Is your system set for AHCI & is the Trim set up correctly.

I chose maximum reliability. I ran a performance test after restarting the computer.

That doesn't look very good havoc what happened did you update the firmware first ?
Could be because it's 1tb :/

Have you run the Performance Optimisation Feature as mentioned in the screen shot of your Post #13.

You can also run the Over Provisioning, which will utilise a percentage of your disc for garbage removal & other tasks, that prolong the life of the SSD.

lol
His over provisioning
Did you see his disk
Using 340gb of a 954gb drive so his Over provisioning is 614gbs

Which might be why his read and write is way down
10-20% of used space is plenty or go 100gbs over usage.

Not quite sure what you mean there Thrash. This is a screen shot of my Over Provisioning.

Over provisioning is simply available space on the disk it does not have to be a set amount unless the disk is near full.
If the disk is full which is common if people use a smaller 120gb... ssd and is using 110gbs.. on it then using a set amount will insure only the sdd's firmware will use that amount for OP.

If you look at your disk size in disk management I wouldn't be surprised if it shows less that amount you set for or magician allotted for OP.

My point was Havoc's disk is large and C partition is way too big.

I ran the performance monitor again after the optimization.
Below is what my provisioning shows.

Samsung Magician and TRIM message
I recently installed a Samsung 840 EVO 500GB SSD. I checked first off and TRIM is on. However, when I run the Magician it tells me that my OS(7 x64) doesn't support TRIM. Is it telling me that it doesn't now because Samsung is in charge? Any ideas? Thank you.
