I have been having problems with freezing and have posted to the “My SSD Hard Disk freezes intermittently” thread.
I have upgraded from a very stable system running a Crucial C300 128G SSD to a SanDisk Extreme 240G - basically for the extra space.
I have had a very strange problem whilst trying to install the Intel SATA RAID Driver.
If I try to run the program from the SanDisk SSD (ie. the program is in a folder on the Sandisk SSD) it ask if “I want to allow this program to make changes to this computer” - I respond with a “Yes” - and it then pops up a window telling me “Setup.exe has stopped working”
If I move the setup exe to a different drive it installs just fine.
It’s absolutely repeatable - fails every time on the SanDisk - works fine on any other drive.
Other drivers have installed ok from the Sandisk SSD.
