You can check the version through the system report generated through Intel® Rapid Storage Technology (or Intel® Matrix Storage Manager). For information on how to get this report you can refer to this article:
I don't have either Intel Rapid Storage Technology or Intel Matrix Storage Manager on my system. The only thing I have is the Intel SSD Toolbox.
Also, since I'm running the 64 bit version of Windows 7 would either of the packages you referred to work with a 64 bit OS?
Lastly, I see that my original question has been identified as being answered when to me it seems like it hasn't. Shouldn't there be a way where I could mark this item as being unresolved?
Another bit of information. I found an Intel webpage where I could download the Intel Rapid Storage Technology and I did so. However the zipped file did not include any executable files so I was unable to install it which might be a good thing because I don't know what the hell I'm doing. I know just enough about computers to be dangerous. For a number of years I collected a paycheck for writing programs (assembly, Fortran, etc.) but we had technical folks take care of any of our hardware problems.
Anyway the instructions for installing the Rapid Storage Technology indicated that there should be a .exe in the zip file but there wasn't.
You probably found the F6 zip to install Intel® Rapid Storage Technology files during the operating system installation, which does not use any executable file.
In this case you may just use the link provided below, which will install Intel® Rapid Storage Technology 11.2 which is a newer version of the driver that is being provided through Windows* updates.
You just need to run the file that this will download and this update and install everything it by itself.
