Need help in setting up my X1 thinkpad to use Rapid Drive Advance

hi,

 

I am trying to setup x1 thinkpad rapid drive advance. I bought a thinkpad x1 with 128GB ssd and a 1 TB usb 3.0 external drive. Is it possible for me to use the external 1TB usb harddrive for rapid drive advance hhd?

 

x1 is running in windows 764bit with 4Gb memory. when i plug-in the 1TB drive, my enable rapiddrive  check box is still disabled and cannot be check. my 1tb drive can be seen in the explorer window but not in the large hdd window of rapid drive advance tool. can anyone lead me to the right path? Smiley Happy .

 

thanks.

RapidDrive Advanced software has been withdrawn due to serious bugs.  Please stop using it, and uninstall it.  And it wouldn't work with a USB HDD anyway.

 

What is your goal for using the USB HDD?
