    I decided not to share the link since you're better of just waiting for an official patch/release.

    Now, apparently, they've *LIMITED* the number of downloads per day of Magician software until November 18. Why does this sound... evil?

    Thanks, up until now, ive just been using a bootable partedmagic CD to secure erase my nvme drives, been wondering how long it would take Samsung to get something together.

    What annoys me about this software is it must be allowed online access to validate the drives in your system or you cant make use of the features.
    I dont mind this program needing low level access to my hardware but I do not want it going online while doing so, especially without asking.
    A program that is regularly updated has no need to be online to verify a drives compatibility, especially when the update is needed to support new drives anyway!
    I am not happy, its an unnecessary information grab and uncontrolled network access from a computer owners perspective.
    Compatibility can easily be checked locally.

    There needs, at minimum, to be control over online activity (at least an option to dis/en-able the feature) so it will only happen when authorised.
