Storage Exec isn't an 'optimisation' program. There isn't any optimisng to do on modern versions of Windows. So you're not missing anything in that regard.
It's features include: firmware updates, diagnostic info (via SMART data), secure erasing the drive, over provisioning, and RAM caching. Most of this can be done in other ways if there's a specific task you are wanting to perform?
As for fixing storage executive, a few ideas:
Check what sata port it is conneced to and make sure it's a chipset based one and not a third party one (ie an intel or AMD port)
Do you have many drives? I seem to recall past posts saying the software only shows a certain number of drives. Not sure if this is still the case (or ever was vs some other issue on the posters system). but try it in a lower numbered port.
Try changing your sata driver. Between your chipset driver and the Microsoft one.
Does the drive identify correctly in device manager? I recall a couple of past posts where a cloned drive has still shown to Windows as the old hard drive model.
