Methods to determine if Intel RST is managing a RAID or Optane Memory volume in the system
- Purchased a new system and need to know if the storage system is being managed by Intel Rapid Storage Technology (Intel RST) for either RAID or Intel Optane memory volumes.
- Need to know if the Intel Optane Memory and Storage Management application can be uninstalled.
