Hi Folks,
It’s been months since I’ve installed my Samsung 840 EVO 512GB SSD. I had my O/S installed on a Plextor 256 M5 Pro SSD and migrated it to the Samsung using EaseUS. I never installed the “Magician xx” software and frankly, I can’t recall if I even updated the firmware although it’s likely that I did.

So I guess I was living under a rock because I only recently found out about the software Samsung created called “RAPID”. From what I understand, this piece of software can significantly increase the I/O speeds regarding “hot data”.

My question is; would I be taking a big risk trying to install the Magician software, (in order to acquire the RAPID program), this late into the installation?

The Samsung SSD has been installed for months and includes various Mklink shortcuts as well as Steam Mover procedures etc. and that concerns me. On the other hand, I have no idea if the magician software and RAPID even touch those points.
Thanks, Rich

Thanks, though I'm wondering if there's away to get RAPID without installing the Magician software. Of course, I'm going to check that out but I thought I'd ask in case you already happen to know.
