Same here. Win 10 lags Win 7 when opening location, copying/deleting files over network. My guess is there are processes monitoring things.

Hello Shakecip

Double check you have your ssd connected to an Intel sata port, you might also want to check how magician is configured.

The 840 SSD is to blame, you need to refresh the drive, you can find details about it on the net, this drive suffers from performance degradation over time and you need to use an application from Samsung to refresh it.
