Intel Rapid technology?
« on: March 05, 2018, 02:14:34 PM »
Greetings CH!

Have a computer here that is rather stumping me a tad. Its an Asus S400CA touch screen laptop that has a dual storage setup. 24gb SSD + 1TB mechanical and running software windows combines the drives. Question is, is that software intel rapid technology? I installed it but can't find it now to configure it, unless im doing something wrong. Could anyone offer some assistance?
thanks.

That is a cache drive. It would be handled by "ExpressCache" software.
I was trying to dereference Null Pointers before it was cool.

To use it as a cache drive the SSD has to be unpartitioned, then you install the cache software and it will create a partition that it will use.
