Prominent SSD (Solid State Drive) manufacturers like Intel, Kingston, Samsung, SanDisk, Crucial, and Corsair offer their own software to manage SSDs. These SSD tweaking and optimization software allow you change a bunch of default settings and update the SSD firmware to the latest available version.
When Windows 10 was released to the public back in July month of this year, almost every SSD manufacturer, except Samsung, updated SSD optimization tool to add full Windows 10 support. Samsung, for reasons best known to it, took its own time to update the Magician software to add full support for Windows 10.
