I am having very bad issues with getting my 3TB hard drive detected. Windows 7 disc management is only detecting 746.39 Gb of unallocated space on my 3TB internal hard drive with GPT. I previously got it set up with NTFS in ubuntu which formatted a 2.72 TB partition but unfortunately after using about 1TB of the drive in windows the data was overwriting itself and corrupting the harddrive.


I spent $150 getting my BIOS flashed, wiped the drive, removed the partition and now boom, same original problem... HOW DO I FIX THIS?


I heard installing Intel® Rapid Storage Technology driver or something can and has fixed the problem for people but I am unsure of whether or not I should install this. Is it like a BIOS Flash? In otherwords can installing the Intel® Rapid Storage Technology driver completely stuff up my computer making it unbootable?


My main 500 gig boot drive with windows 7 is MBR while the secondary 3TB GPT drive is just for data such as videos. Will Intel® Rapid Storage Technology stop my MBR main drive from functioning properly?


Should I install Intel® Rapid Storage Technology or not? I am really confused about the risks. Its just a windows setup file/installer but I'm really worried.


Stuff like this makes me not want to install it:





I've heard that RST thing helping a lot of people however such as this guy:


I'm scared! I want the problem fixed but I don't want to mess up the computer!
