    Hi there

    A doubt: is there any problem if i do the migration today & do the physical installation tomorrow or day after,
    I did migrate the hard drive to SSD now , and when i asked service center technicians if i could come for replacement, they told to come another day

    Only issue with that would be that, if you use the computer after cloning the drive, any changes you make won't be included on the clone. Not really a big deal, just save any work you do to a thumb drive or something like that at the end of the day.

    Hi guys

    Installed SSD ...yippeeee.. a very thank you to all here helped me
    Wow, its lightning fast than my HDD , This is my first SSD

    After installation I did these -

    From Magician software - advanced optimization(user defined):
    I had disabled hibernate, manually configured Virtual memory (page file size set: 400MB to 2048MB), disabled Prefetch & SuperFetch (does that cause any performance effect? Note:-have 8Gigs RAM) , Done a performance optimisation, system restore OFF,

    Enabled RAPID mode, Restarted system
    One thing I noted is HP 3D driveguard is automatically disabled - I don't know why?

    Also, when I went to Windows Disk defrag to turn it off - I could see its marked - Needs optimization for drives, should I click optimize ?

    Click image for larger version


    Last thing I was curious about was, the Authenticate button from Magician is always showing "Failed to authenticate", any ideas of what to do for it?

    Any changes or anything else to do ?


    Thanks guys,

    I have SSD's in 3 of my 4 PC's. I disable hibernation from the command prompt. That gets ride of the hiberfile.sys file. I don't use sleep or hibernation anyway. I don't use fast startup either. I don't see the point when using an SSD. I turn indexing off too. I hardly ever use the search function.

    what should I do to disable hibernation from cmd?
    how to get rid of fast start up?

    indexing put off from magician just now.

    EDIT: Turned off hibernate from cmd, Fast startup automatically disabled by disabling hibernate

    Can I disable from startup & uninstall Magician software after optimisation, trim & other desired tweaks?
    Will uninstalling it change everything back to scratch?

    EDIT:
    I cant see Samsung magician s/w in startup apps, but its loading everytime,
    Is this the Magician itself or something related to RAPID mode:

    Sorry, I probably should have posted a link. Looks like you figured it all out anyway.

    I'm not sure what to tell you about the Samsung Magician software. Have a look at this and decide for yourself. A closer look at RAPID DRAM caching on the Samsung 840 EVO SSD - The Tech Report - Page 1

    After reading it, I directly went and disabled it

    Here are synthetic benchmarks that I ran:

    Samsung Magician performance benchmark:
    light blue - with RAPID
    navy blue - without RAPID

    CrystalDiskMark -

    With RAPID:

    Without RAPID:

    Its showing a dramatic difference in sequential & 4K read/write

    I don't know whats happening here, but I'll go with the article..

    Can I uninstall the Magician software now completely?
