I have a Lenovo ThinkPad G16 Gen3 with 2x Samsung 990Pro running in raid0. It seems to have DirectStorage supported when i check with "fsutil bypassio state /v c:\"

But for some reason not enabled.

Any ideas on how to get this working as intended?

Hello KimA,


Thank you for posting in our community.


To help you better, I need more information about this case and I request you to answer and provide the following:


• What version of the Intel RST driver did you install?


• Did you get the latest Intel RST driver from your laptop manufacturer?


• You said that you have "2x Samsung 990Pro running in raid0". Does it mean that you also installed the OS on RAID 0?


• Your DirectX 12 screenshot shows 3 non-nVME drives, what are those exact drives? I know that drive C is the RAID 0 array, what about drives D and G? Please provide the exact models.


• What is your Windows OS version?


• Did you update to the latest version?


• How did you set up your Raid 0 array? Provide the exact steps.


• Provide and attach the Intel® System Support Utility Logs of your computer. This will help us check your system configuration in depth. Here's the link on how to do it: https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000057926/memory-and-storage.html
