I don't have a UPS. If I crash will the OS/filesystem get corrupted and not boot anymore? How much RAM does RAPID use/take?

I notice programs like Adobe Photoshop/Illustrator open almost instantly, so games will also benefit but probably once the data is cached in the RAM. Never blue screened, ever!

I have a laptop so it has a battery, that's one.. Two...I live in Dubai, electricity NEVER EVER goes out...we're in 2014 not 1994

stop worrying too much

also, every person in this world must have regular backups to an external HDD whether or not they are using RAPID, RAM caching software, or nothing. backups are a MUST if you ask meh

Windows will do that. It is called superfetch and is integrated into the OS.

I read the first post in this thread, that claims Magician 4.3 fixed, "Fixing auto-wake up issue during hibernation mode without user’s command". Perhaps that works for Window Hibernate, but Windows Sleep is unusable with 4.3. It wakes immediately even if the main process in not running in the background. Uninstall 4.3 and Sleep works fine.

Wow, Dubai sounds like fun! biggrin.gif I just had a power outage yesterday even though it's extremely rare. Since I'm on desktop with no UPS I just wondered if I'd need to restore the entire drive just to boot up again.

I agree about backups, but normally when power cuts out for split second you just loose something if the file hadn't been saved yet, and you can still boot up.

It is to be noted that I could enable rapid mode with older version.




Hi Redshoulder,

A new version of magician has been released by Samsung. Please find below link to download the same. Hope this works for you

I have a Samsung 840 EVO and am trying to enable RAPID, but it doesn't believe that my CPU has enough GHz. It says "Acutal" of 0.80 but I am running at 4.2 GHz. That's the only part that is not eligible to run RAPID.

Has this happened to any of you?

Hi Hoff248,

On which version is this happening. Have you tried using 4.5 Magician Beta Version. Because it's working fine on 4.5 Beta Version. Please find below link to download
http://www.samsung.com/global/business/semiconductor/samsungssd/magician-beta.html

Are you having intel turbo boost enabled or something, on which configuration is this happening?

I'll need to check what version, but I just downloaded it a couple days ago - so whatever was the latest on Sunday night.

Just last night, at startup I get an error saying that Magician has encountered an error and cannot continue. Nothing seems to happen, but I don't know what's causing that error message.

Configuration? Its just a single SSD. Intel Turbo Boost is not enabled.

Thanks a lot for your help.

Some comments about the software...

I am dissatisfied with Samsung Magician because they removed support for secure wiping SSDs in Windows 8.1. My guess is too many users were accidentally wiping their drives? And Magician failed to see my SSD until I installed Windows onto it and booted from it. I tried formatting it numerous times and it was visible in Drive Management but Magician would not see it.

But rapid mode boosted my speeds in the benchmarks but I didn't really notice any speed improvement outside of the benchmarks.

I still can secure erase in Win 8.1...

 

And RAPID doesn't affect usage much at all either.

Hi Hoff248,
Thanks for the info. I guess this got to do something with the Driver(Controller) the SSD is connected to, Magician Supports Microsoft Driver and Latest Driver of Intel and AMD. Can you once recheck where you SSD is connected e it.
1. Windows + R command, 2. Type "devmgmt.msc", 3. Select View menu - Device By Connection - Expand tree ACPI X86\X64 based PC -> PCI Bus -> Expand further tree structure to check where your SSD is connected to. Check for the Driver Version and Name and reply back

If Possible you can export system info from Magician and share it. Which will support me to help you with this ;-)
