NVMe driver for SSD 970 EVO Plus and AMD-RAID

This Samsung NVMe driver 3.3 must not be used in an AMD RAID system.  It causes random NTFS errors and prevents the SSD from being treated by AMD RAID as a normal drive.  It should be uninstalled in Device Manager and allow Windows 10 to replace it with the Microsoft Storage Spaces Controller.  The SSD will then appear in RAIDXpert2 and behave like a normal drive or legacy/volume array.

This also means that you cannot use Samsung Magician software to monitor the SSD in these systems; neither can you use the Data Migration software, which is a pity because it otherwise delivers a standard Microsoft partition layout which means the migrated system would be upgradeable.  Instead, clone your AMD RAID Windows 10 using AOMEI Backupper Standard (free) edition, do a disk clone sector-by-sector, then clean up unwanted data partitions on the SSD as desired, if any.
