Should I partition the drive into two 500GB partitions?

I personally would but seeing the new score you should be fine as a bottle of wine
I am wondering what disk management shows the size of the ssd
Seems doing the provisioning you'd only see about 850gb available instead of 950gb +- ?

Guys Im not sure to what conclusion we got

If I got it bottom line would be its fine to use this software to optimize SSD preformance but one should manually go through all settings in order to do so?

Yep
Looks good
I would knock the free space in half at least but that's just me seeing you have D & E as other disks I guess you left those off the disk management window

@Dolke
It doesn't matter really using the utility is the easy route and you can always undo items on the Advanced section later.

Yes. D and E are presently empty. They are 2TB HDD's.

Are you going to use them ?
Might be better to install games on one of them than filling up your ssd :/

Yes. I'll be doing a clean reinstall.
D will be used for games, game save files and files that other programs (Blender, etc.) create.
E will be used for backups of certain files.

Should I still partition the SSD (500GB/500GB) if I move stuff to the D drive?

Absolutely
All you really need is just the C drive on it leave the rest Unallocated
Read and write score might get better the smaller it is and so will the provisioning space needed

Realistically you could get a 250gb ssd just for the os and programs probably and save the 1tb ssd for all of your games and or programs.

I had a 512 GB SSD in this computer when I first built it. That was moved into my Dell laptop and the 1TB SSD installed (the 1TB SSD was on sale so I bought it). Both are the Samsung 850 Pro.

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.
