Let Samsung Magician optimize SSD?

I installed Samsung Magician to see if my SSD firmware was up to date. It is.
It's telling me that my OS is currently optimized for use with a HDD.

I have Samsung 850 EVO but I don't use their optimization as my PC is used for my recording studio and I have it manually optimized for recording. I tried it and one thing it did was change my "Power Plan" to something I didn't want. I had to manually reset it.

If not doing anything specifically that the Magician would interfere with, I say use it.

I have SAMSUNG 850 pro version and I just recently cloned my windows 7 partition on to this new SSD using their own software.

Cloning went smootly and I was able to boot in Windows from the SSD right away. Even driver letters remaind C as it was on the old HDD.

What I didint do is used that software to optimize OS. Honestly Im afraid that it will mess up some fine tuned settings in the OS...or Im just being paranoid...

Some of the settings it changes you may not want changed, it`s best to go over each setting manually.

Hi,
Yea I used maximum reliability and about all it did was create a new power plan that I tweaked a little bit
All the cache... stuff is already recommended to disable so I don't see why doing it manually or through magician is a big deal
As you can see you can re-enable anything in advanced if you start having issues.

HAVOC, have you got the Samsung Magician SSD manual, if not you can download one from this Samsung website. Once you have done that you can read through it & decide on what settings might suit you best.

If you need more help get back. I have a Samsung 840 Pro that has been running for a few years now & I have it set up as User Defined.

I never even opened the envelope that was in the SSD box. I downloaded Magician from the website. I can't find the SSD manual on the website so I'll look on the disc.

Nothing on the disc. Just warranty info, and install info for the SSD and Data Migration stuff.

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.
