intel rst service

rst
Hi,

I'm not sure since when but when I looked at task bar there was an icon saying intel rapid storage technology.

What is this?

And sometimes it changes to intel rst service not running and my system frozes.

Hello,

Intel Rapid Storage Technology is the software that manages and monitors the Hard drive  driver.  The app that runs in the task bar in your screenshot is the monitor program.

If it is closing unexpectedly and causing a freeze, you might try updating to the latest version if applicable:

From my experience, when I uninstalled it, the program safely left the driver intact (it informed me), but since this is an upgrade, there should be no issue in going the upgrade path.

If possible, please do a backup of your data beforehand just in case.
