Hello G3n-AK47,



Thanks for posting in the Intel® Optane™ Memory community.



What Windows version are you using and what Windows built do you have?



The issue only happens when accelerating the WD storage? Have you tested accelerating a different storage?



Is the WD storage your primary drive? For primary drive I refer to it been your boot drive.



If you the WD drive is not your primary drive, have you followed the configuration steps provided by Intel to accelerate your secondary drive?



Please check the following statement:



- Secondary drive type: Press Windows logo + X > Disk Management > Right click on secondary drive and select Properties > Move to Volumes tab to find the drive type. Drives that are Type 'Dynamic' aren't supported. Drive must be in Type 'Basic'.



Best Regards,
