Samsung Data Migration
Samsung’s Data Migration utility is essentially a cloning software that allows users to make an exact duplicate of their current drive on to the PRO. Not only does this prevent accidental data loss, but also results in two drives for data redundancy; just clone your current drive and tuck it away safely as a backup drive.
There are several useful features with Samsung’s Magician software, from optimization, to updates, to benchmarking.
First off, we see disk information displayed on the first tab. Next is the OS Optimization, which are one-touch solutions for commonly unknown or misunderstood system features for SSD novice users, such as tweaking the Write Cache Buffer, Virtual Memory, and Drive Hiberation.
There’s also the ability to update the firmware with a one-touch button. No need to download a file, copy to DOS-based flash drive, and so forth. Extremely easy here from Samsung.
We’ll talk separately about RAPID Mode after initial testing. You’ll soon see why it merits its own discussion.
Let’s move onto testing.
