Is there anywhere I can download iaStorAfsServiceApi.dll? I keep getting an error about it missing after updating Windows.

Reinstall your Intel RST Driver, which probably was corrupted after Windows update to version 1903. https://downloads.dell.com/FOLDER05652684M/1/Intel-Rapid-Storage-Technology-Driver-and-Management_58...

Which windows? WIndows 10? What version? 1903? What processor model number? What motherboard/device? Specify make and model number.

After disabling Intel optane in RST and rebooting. I was then able to un-install the application and basic features of Intel RST using the executable above. Reboot. Then I was able to re-install Intel RST using the executable above. Reboot. Finally I re-enabled Intel optane (not sure it makes much of a difference) with one final reboot to finish the job. I no longer get the error when opening windows explorer.

 

Thanks Leon for the help, I appreciate it!

@LWAKSMAN​ Mine required the uninstall first before reinstalling the this piece in order to clear the error message. I agree with @BCott (Customer)​ only I did not disable Intel Optane I simply uninstalled and reinstalled. The error is gone now.

@DDesc3​ ,

I don't know if you have Optane Memory module installed and if you are using it for HDD acceleration. Probably you don't. @BCott​ is using Optane Memory module to accelerate HDD. therefore before uninstalling the RST software, he had to disable Optane enablement first. Failing to do this may result in loosing system drive.
