Hi,
Yeah used it and it automatically setup over provisioning hogging 20% of my free storage space
I already have unallocated space about that much and is all the firmware needs

Only way to get rid of the 20% over provisioning was to uninstall and reinstall the older version.

For both my 980 Pro and 980, it says the "drive does not support this feature." so that is not a problem here anyway.

I didn't install it on my new desktop. My Samsung 860 EVO drive is used for my Data drive and I don't see a need for it. My C: drive is a Western Digital NVMe drive.

Odd; I installed it a few weeks ago and it did not overprovision either of my drives. Maybe it's because the amount of free space on both drives is quite high.

Hi,
Prior version didn't really have modes
I looked back it did power saving on a 850 pro 256gb
You'd think it would default to standard mode but it could very well be free space surprised it didn't care about the 25gb unallocated space but I suppose it wants to do that instead of users doing it for the firmware.

Ahhhh this is the first time i've used it properly, More out of curiosity than something i'll get use out of.
Yeah for sure

Due to them being M2's im gonna assume.
I don't know; I've spent the last hour looking into this as within Samsung Magician if you look on the right hand side of the interface you'll see Supported Features by Model and click on that then scroll down and you'll see that both the 980 Pro and 980 show Over Provisioning as a feature.

I am getting a firmware update message from Samsung Magician.
I guess it's just a generic message, because when I click on "Update", it's saying that I have the latest version.
Update your firmware to the latest version for operational stability and performance optimization.

It appears to be just a 'helpful tip'. I clicked 'don't show again' and it never returned.
