Using a Samsung EVO plus 970 NVMe drive in a M2 slot on a Gigabyte UD3H-z97 mobo, on a windows 7 ultimate install. Using it as the boot drive, have 2 other hdd installed in computer. CrystalDisk, Intel RST and basically every other tool aside from disk management and device manager are unable to either see this drive or read s.m.a.r.t stats from it. The disk is fine though, no issues with windows, and these tools display my other drives just fine, including s.m.a.r.t info. Any thoughts?
