Does Samsung Magician Software Needs To Be Running for Rapid Mode?

Hello,

I am pretty interested in buying the Samsung 840 EVO 120GB SSD. I heard good things about the Rapid Mode that is in this product.

The problem is - This PC I am using belongs to me, I built it myself. However I am not the administator of this PC, my dad is. He assume control all of the hardware and software of the family.

So I am a standard user. I heard that to enabled Rapid Mode you need Magician Software. But this Magician software by Samsung prompts a UAC everytime you try to use it. The question is do we (me and my dad) only have to enabled Rapid Mode once and it will stay ON permamently without needing the Magician software to run everytime I boot? Because I am fine with that. But if I need to have Magician software to be running ALL THE TIME in the background to even allow Rapid Mode to be enabled, then thats a bummer. If thats the case then everytime I turn on my PC I have to physically drag my dad to my PC and enters his admin password. That would be highly annoying and not worth it.

And no, disabiling UAC will never happen because he will never do it. Don't ask why.

In short, enabling Rapid Mode edits registry details. If we enabled it ONCE and leave it alone, the changes in the registry detail will stay the same, yes? Will it not revert back to the original/default registry when I shutdown? if thats the case then I do not need to run Magician software just to enable Rapid Mode everytime I boot up my PC.

  1. no. you set it to started and it runs without magician being active. so he can start it as admin turn it on and then remove the magician from the start list of programs

    Thanks for the quick reply!

    Do you mean that once we enabled Rapid mode in Magician, it stays in Rapid mode FOREVER even after reboot(unless we disable it) and then we do NOT NEED Magician anymore?

    yep, you enable it and it stays on. you can restart, do pretty much anything you want until you reopen the magician and disable it. it runs as a service and not part of the magician software. the software just enables/disables it.
  4. you can test this out, enable it, close magician, restart etc etc and eventually reopen the magician, you will see it's still on as you have set it.
  5. Rapid mode, once enabled, becomes a separate service. So you do not need Magician running in the background.

    To prevent Magician from opening up every time you turn the computer on, just disable it from the Start Up programs.
  6. Thank you for the answers!
