Why doesn't my data partition show up when it is on the same drive as the cache partition?

So, I have a 1TB HDD and a 120GB M.2. drive in my PC. The 120GB has 20GB free so I decided to open up IRST and accelerate my HDD. I tell the program that I wish for it to create a 15GB cache partition and it does what it needs to do, yet the data partition on the M.2. disappears from explorer but is still visible as a partition. It only comes back when I disable acceleration and delete the cache partition from within IRST. Any ideas?

In order to do this right, you have to jump through a few hoops. I wrote a whitepaper related to this subject. I cannot find the original posting that included the document, so have attached it here.

Oops, forgot to mention: You need to go back to 14.x/15.x version of the Intel RST package as the later ones had their support for Intel SRT replaced with support for Optane.

Thanks, will take a read. If I downgrade versions, will this affect the current RAID configuration I have setup?
