that is the ESP option I am pretty sure, there is zero hot anything in that bios. ESP is set and should be hot swappable. This is the main boot drive and not sure why you would want that hot swappable. I really think there is an issue where windows would normally go to a screensaver and how this drive freezes. It is always 20-35 mins until win10 gets frozen. I use the computer to listen to music while I am working on the work laptop so it is unattended. This behavior happens on BOTH of these drives after the acronis disk clone. The original samsumg SSD has no such issue!

I just bought 2 Ma500 1tb drive for upgrading my machine. I am using Win10 and an ASUS Sabertooth 990fx R2. The original drive has zero issues. The freeze of the drives, used separately on the same machine, lock up windows after 15-20 mins. All Acronis software has been removed as well as the crucial toolbox, other hard drive software, EaseUS, too. There is the standard sata controller by windows being used. when booting into safe mode, there is no issue. This is 100% fail on both drives freezing windows. It seems to me that the time it takes for the screensaver to engage might cause this issue, but nothing to prove it. I am ready to return these drive if I am not able to resolve this issue. the time out happens in the middle of a windows repair from the images created by microsoft too. I made sure to power down the original system before removing the cloned drives too PLEASE help!
