post #1891 of 5386
hmmm...i wonder why it shows as not running. It sits there in the taskbar and when i hover it says its not running. when i click on it is when i get the pop up saying its troubleshooting.

you think the driver is still working though? its just an odd issue i never saw before.

Yes the driver is working, if it wasn't working you couldn't boot windows lol. That is just the RST control center. It is not the driver.

Hello!

Thank you very much for this guide Sean, it really has been a tremendous help!

Just wondering however, which backup/cloning software would you recommend? Looking for one that preserves all 4k alignments/etc so I do not have to go through everything again tongue.gif (Setting up multiple PCs with same hardware throughout).

Thanks a lot!

What is the recommended method of formatting an SSD (that already as an OS installed on it) for a new fresh install of an OS?

Do I just do what this video said again or do I also have to do something else?
