Samsung Magician 4.2

 

Magician software ships with Samsung SSDs on a CD, but the latest version is available at http://www.samsung.com/samsungssd. On the same page you will also find Samsung's Data Migration Software and firmware updates for Samsung SSDs.

 

Magician runs in the system tray and you can find the icon in the lower right corner of your Windows screen. By default, the software starts when you turn your computer on, and it does take a small amount of system resources to operate.

Here we see the opening screen that acts as a welcome screen to the software. The opening screen gives us a lot of information including the health of your SSD, the amount of data written to the drive and the amount of data currently on the drive.

The SMART button at the top gives us easy access to data polled directly from the SSD.

The first page also has a quick SSD performance test for those looking to keep a close eye on SSD performance throughout the life of the drive.
