Most flash storage devices comes with some space already used (for some reason, I'm not sure of).

No, just using it for games...I got it yesterday so i did the allocation and assigned it a drive letter. Not sure if i was supposed to do something else....

Just curious why I only have like 468GB if it's a 500GB ssd????
This is basically a disk drive manufacturer scam. They say that 1024 bytes make a Kibibyte, not a Kilobyte, and so on.

Disk manufactures consider that 1GB = 1,000,000,000 bytes.
While all the normal people (incl. Microsoft) consider 1GB = 1024*1024*1024 bytes. This has (historically) been a standard for 40 years before the "new" prefix convention was introduced.

Hi,
Exactly the same problem over here. How do you downgrade to 4.4 if you get the BSOD and cannot boot Windows (7)?
By the way, I have an encrypted Truecrypt disk.
Thanks,
Jurgen

Update: after decrypting the entire disk with the Truecrypt rescue disk I was able to follow-up on your advice. Thanks!

If you can, try booting into 'Advanced Boot'. For me it was to press F9 repeatedly after the post screen. Then when prompted, press F8. There should be a boot option there that says "Boot to last known good configuration" or something of the sort.

Edit: Once you're in Windows, just uninstall Samsung Magician then install v4.4 of it.

Can confirm that after a major headache, RAPID Mode is out of commission regardless of if I downgrade to 4.4.

Easiest way to fix the BSOD, as mentioned above, is to Press F8 to get to the safe mode dialog, and select "Last known good configuration (Advanced)."

If someone finds a way to re-enable RAPID mode, let me know.

On Windows 7 Ultimate

Or you can use another way if you want try to get previous working configuration. Magician makes Restore Point before each of operation.
And you can use these Restore Points. It means that you can try to get your system before any changes: if you had Magician 4.4 with working RAPID you could roll it back
Step how to it works
1. After BSOD you usually get 2 options
1. Windows Recovery (recommended)
2. Normal Boot.
2. You need to choose first one and then when system says that the system could be recovered from last Restore points need click on "Cancel" button.
3. You will get 2 options. And one of these options will be "Advanced recovery sittings", just choose it.
4. Click on "Recovery from Restore Point" and choose Restore Point before Disable RAPID on Magician 4.4

If you didn't disable restore point creation process on Windows Configuration it should work. I have tested it on my Windows 7 Ultimate

HAHA, OH MY GOSH. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!! I had totally forgotten about this option.

I used 'System Restore' back to the point BEFORE the update started giving my computer BSOD and now my computer is BACK TO NORMAL.

Samsung Magician got restored back to v4.4 with Rapid Mode Enabled.

Thank you so much Sinapsist. Perfect solution.

Hello aznboi156,
I did upgrade to Magician 4.5, I didn't have any issues. If your PC is in same state(BSOD on Rapid enable), can u share the snapshot of your registry.

I wish Samsung Magician Software had a option to 'Disable update notification / Check for updates'.
