I want to uncheck unneeded items in my Windows 7 startup, but I'm really confused about the Intel Rapid Storage Technology thing as a number of people on this forum have advised installing the latest RST driver after installing a SSD which I did.
Is RST for use of SSD as a HD cache or for RAID? I'm doing neither with my SSD or HDD. Should I keep Intel Rapid Storage Technology in my startup?
Intel RST (Rapid Storage Technology) is a RAID & AHCI driver.
Intel SRT (Smart Response Technology) is the software used to cache a HDD with an SSD.
You can keep Intel RST in your startup.
