Whats the deal with rapid???

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hello,

Everytime I use Intel's Rapid crap...Im always having to restore my computer....my power went off, and killed my computer...the only way I was able to reboot was by going into intel's rapid response splash screen and taking it off of "combined".....I dunno why that would help since it would have to pull windows bits and pieces from each drive....or at least the cache....

Im running uber slow now....not on games or anything, but bootup time and all that is forever, launching certain programs etc....
It shows that its disabled, or not running now (intel's RR) and someone told me not to have it on extreme since it kinda backs up data in reg. mode.

When I restored it last time, I made backup copies, image snaps...I couldn't get any of these things to work...refresh windows....nothing..
I'm running windows 8....Is there anyway besides buying a battery backup I could use to insure I don't have to keep doing this? It seems like if I overclock or crash hard, the rapid is unforgiving.

Any suggestions would be great before I wear out my recovery disc's......

None at the moment.....when I open my intels rapid storage(green checkmark), it ask me to if I want to enable it.....Im worried if I do, and shutdown my computer...I'll have the same problem, or it will freeze.....so...I haven't really tried to re-combine them. I have several system snaps, backups and all that....that will not repair, even though I was in rapid storage exel at the time...not extreme....

I even made a data security partition that didn't help one bit...
