    Why can't I accelerate HDD after clean install of Windows 10 64x? Error Message: "0xA001004E): An unknown error occurred while an operation was in progress.  The operation could not be completed."

    ErrorMagnet

      Computer was purchased in 2012 with Windows 7 initially installed and RST acceleration (using Corsair 64G SSD) functioning fine.  With Windows 10 release, I upgraded HDD more than a year ago and again, Intel RST acceleration of HDD (with same SSD) functioning completely fine.  With passage of time, C drive required replacement.  Installed brand new HDD and did a clean install of Windows 10 64 bit.  Computer back up and running.  Downloaded most recent version of Intel RST.  Attempting to accelerate HDD using same SSD.  When do so, consistently receive following error message: "0xA001004E): An unknown error occurred while an operation was in progress.  The operation could not be completed."  Have turned off Windows Defender anti-virus temporarily during RST file download and install per other posts.  Did not resolve issue.  Uninstalled RST and downloaded older version 14.8.0.1042 per other post suggestions.  Still same error message.   Have searched far and wide with no solution found.  Give up on acceleration?  Has been great feature these past 5 years.
