My write and read times are less than half what they were compared to when I first installed in my 2012 mini DIY fusion running win8 under parallels in 10.8.3. In blackmagic it gives the option of selecting the target drive but the ssd is not listed as an option, if you choose "osxfusion" you are denied because it is "read only" you have to choose downloads, applications etcetc, is this normal? So I don't know if it is speed testing the hdd or the ssd? I also can't upgrade the firmware from mac side because i don't have an internal optical drive for the iso method. From the windows side the samsung Magician cannot find the SSD, I guess because it is fusion? Parallels has been acting up I'll probably do a complete reinstall of Parallels and windows. Could torch be the culprit? Could PrivitizeVPN be the culprit, I have heard conflicting reports, one stating privitizevpn is a virus.
