    IAStorDataSvc is constantly consuming a lot of processing

      Hi y'all at Intel Support Community,

       

      Lenovo U310 - i5 - 8GB - 32 GB SSD - 500GB HD - upgraded from W7 home premium to W8 pro to W8.1 pro

       

      Since the upgrade to W8.1 I noticed that IAStorDataSvc - which is installed at the same time during the upgrade to 8.1 - uses a lot of memory/processing.

       

      My questions:

      1. What is the function of this program?

      2. Is this program part of Intel's Rapid Storage Technology (Installed at 10/18/2013, version 11.1.0.1006)?

      3. Should it be active all the time or can it be suspended/de-acivated without causing any damage?

       

      Sincerely,

      Jim
