OS Optimization




There are four tabs in the OS Optimization area of Magician 4.2. The first is for Maximum performance. In each tab a number of Windows settings are changed with one click of the button.




The Maximum Capacity settings are nearly identical to the Maximum Performance, but the hibernation and virtual memory settings are in line with Windows default settings.




The Maximum Reliability setting reduces disk the number of writes to the SSD by disabling or reducing the settings of built in Windows features.




The Advanced settings lets you pick and choose the settings you want to enable or disable.



Over Provisioning




The Over Provisioning tab allows you to quickly and easily set reserved area on your Samsung SSD. The software recommends 10%.




If you run your SSD with a lot of data on the drive this is a good setting to use since it will increase performance and the life of your SSD.
