For those who speak english, this is the RAID software for Intel P55 motherboards.
English translation of above: xInsIDE.exe is part of the JMicron controller driver. The controller manages SATA connections on many motherboards. The driver is required if the RAID or AHCI mode runs.
xInsIDE.exe is required to run if you are running ANY RAID configuration via a motherboard; it is the chipset driver.
