Averkiev:

 

I have looked through the Lenovo documentation and I don't see any references to the RapidBoot software not being required if a SSD is installed.  Is your decision just personal preference, or are you aware of a reason why it should not be used with a SSD?

 

On another tangent, I found the following remarks about RapidBoot on the Lenovo website when trying to gather more information about it: RapidBoot for Windows 7. This provides a little bit of information about what this software does.

Re: Windows Search on W520 - Keeps Getting Disabled

Thanks so much for this.  I had the same problem and it was the RapidBoot v1.00 causing the issue.  Rather than uninstall it though I just ran the ThinkVantage System Update and it detected an update for RapidBoot and updated it to version 1.12 and the problem seems to be fixed Smiley Happy

Re: Windows Search on W520 - Keeps Getting Disabled

I had the opposite effect
I was trying to disable wsearch and it kept getting re-enabled
Using auditing turned up nothing?
Services.exe was the one changing the status??
Turned off Rapid Boot and all is well
Rapid Boot v1.23

Re: Windows Search on W520 - Keeps Getting Disabled

I have removed RapidBoot but my T430 keeps disabling the windows search feature whenever it sleeps. Any ideas of something else to try? Where do I look to see why, or what's causing this? ie a log?

Re: Windows Search on W520 - Keeps Getting Disabled

This stream is very helpful.  I have the same Windows Search disabling itself on my X220,  which is now three years old.

 

How do I either update RapidBoot,  or get rid of it?

 

Thanks

Re: Windows Search on W520 - Keeps Getting Disabled

Go to Programs and Features, and uninstall Rapidboot (may be called Rapidboot Shield). The tool doesn't work as well as it should and is more or less discontinued.
