Question

Windows 8.1 will defrag SSD due to bug

win 8.1 has bug when optimizing drives, it will start defragging SDD drives even though it appears to TRIM this know on all forums including Microsoft which denies it, but our new SSD will be ruined because of dumb Microsoft. Why isn't there any info here to help us, who buy your drives on making the correct settings for drive optimizing, defragging TRIM, etc. If Samsung doesn't know what we have to setup then we are wasting our money on these drives.

Question

How can I remove this device from the eject media list?

I want to remove this SSD from the list of ejectable media (the toolbar icon that includes my USB drives) so I don't accidentally disable my main OS drive. I can't disable write-caching on this drive and Magician doesn't appear to have any options or suggestions.

Question

What material are the mounting screw holes on the body of the SMS-MZ-SPA256 drive made from?

We are looking at using the SMS-MZ-SPA256 drives in a product we are having designed and need to estimate installation torque values for the mounting screws for manufacturing/maintenance. Knowing the material will help us determine a torque value. (Or if you can advise the correct torque limit for the screws that would be ideal & really helpful.)

Question

I am planning to place two partitions on my SSD. Recommend Allocation size, alignment, etc

I am planning to place two partitions on my 256GB SSD into a 60Gb for OS, and a 180 Gb partition for Data.
1) Can you recommend the optional allocation size, alignment, etc.
2) Can you provide the instructions for aligning - Do I use the Magician software to do this? How?
3) My XP Pro install did not recognize the SSD when I enabled the ACHI in the BIOS. I would like to try to avoid creating a slipstream XP install to include an ACHI driver. Can I enable the ACHI in the BIOS AFTER installing XP Pro?

What laptop? Most laptops can be upgraded as long as you can get to the hard drive. Remember to have the restore media as well. Most laptops have a partition that you can restore from.
