My Windows 11 machine is running Samsung Magician which has recently been updated to version 8.0.0.

A service called SamsungMagicianSVC (C:\Program Files (x86)\Samsung\Samsung Magician\SamsungMagicianSVC.exe) is running that keeps open handles on all removable drives connected at startup, thus preventing "safe removal" of said drives.

I need to stop the service every time I want to eject a removable drive.

Samsung, please fix this bug ASAP.

I found another problem with 8.0.0's SamsungMagicianSVC: It disables almost all actions in the Windows 10 Disk Management console. E.g. you click on a drive or partition and select New Simple Volume or Properties or Change Drive Letter and Paths and... nothing happens. 

Thank god my tech support guy (GPT4...) eventually suggested to enable/disable services with a "binary search" so it only wasted 2 hours of my time to figure out.

Samsung needs to send this back to QA, presto.
