    All it does is run windows defrag "optimize" command.

    Which just runs TRIM command

    Oh, I see, thanks.
    I have disabled that thing because I'm using a commercial software which runs multi-threaded defragmentation on all drives at once).
    This explains why it does "nothing" on my system.

    Hope you aren't using that 'commercial' software on the SSD

    No lol, the SSD just holds the OS and the software I work with ;)
    There 9 other HDD's inside the case and 5 more in external boxes plugged into USB3's...
    Pretty insane, I know ^.^

    Thanks for the headsup, but is there any changelog at all? I can't find one. So I assume 5.2 is still build on " less is more" compared to magician 4.x versions.

    Downloaded version 5.2.0.1610 through a file sharing site. Seems legit and is stamped by Samsung at January 8th. No changelog or release notes provided yet. Same functions as 5.1 but now it's able to list all of my stations which version 5.1 couldn't (Marvell controller and Intel Raid set were not visible before).
