Accelerate two independent drives with two independent SSDs using RST


I have a Biostar T77B (don't give me any crap, it was really cheap), a 3570K, a Seagate 3TB 7200 RPM HDD, and an OCZ Agility 3 60GB SSD, as well as the other junk that makes up a computer. I just bought a second Seagate 3TB 7200 RPM drive and a Kensington SSDNow V300 60GB SSD. I have my OCZ drive set up to accelerate my system drive and everything works beautifully.

I was hoping to recreate the magic with this new drive, but the RST application doesn't seem to want to accelerate more than one drive at a time.

Is this a system or hardware limitation, or have I just not looked in the right place?

I unaccelerated my existing drive pair and got everything back to the state it would have been in before I set up drive acceleration the first time. But once I've set up acceleration on one drive, there is no option to accelerate additional drives. Is this impossible?

Hi rustyspoork, I understand you would like accelerate another hard drive on your computer using separate SSD drive.

At this point, the Intel Rapid Storage technology does not allow accelerating second hard drive on same computer. I will make sure to point this out to the appropriate department for future hardware technologies.
