I have just built a windows 7 pro pc with a gigabyte z97 mobo and a pair of EVO850 SSd's running a Mirror all well and good and goes like lightening.
But I need the drives encrypted so I set the BIOS to have a user password as this apparently causes the class 0 encryption of the drives. I run the Samsung magician software and he drives are all good etc, however when looking at the security options it only tells you how to set the class 0 rather than whether the drive has encrypted itself.
How best to check apart from I guess putting one of the drives into another machine which seems a bit Neanderthal.
