Currently I have my OS installed on my 32gb SSD-drive on the lenovo y580. Recently I found out that I shouldn't have installed it there, but to the HDD drive and use the SSD for caching. What program should I use for caching since Y580 doesn't support RAID. And when having my OS on the SSD., should I just re-install it on the HDD drive. But I have personal data as pictures, movies, music and documents on the HDD. If I install windows there will I lose them. They are important for me!

Thanks for Posting,
You can shrink your Current partition on your HDD to make another Partition for Installing Windows back.
This way you can install Another Windows on Your HDD Without deleting your files.
Then about the cache program you might want to check this article.

Hi, thank you for the responce about the HDD. I understand that
But, about the thread. Yes, I have read it, but I guess I dont understand some stuff, so please help !
when I run eccmd.exe - info it shows me this:
"'eccmd.exe' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file."
(This means that ExpressCache is not installed. Refer to the Solution section of this document.)
What then ?
2. When I go to diskmgmt.msc I'm having a hard time understanding since it's a different language and I dont know what to do. (I'll give you a photo, maybe you could help me out)
When I install expresscahce (I havent yet,because i want to know what it does) what will it do and how would this be helpfull for my system?
Thank you in advance.

Here is the provided solution on the article
You will have to clear out the SSD partitions, So you will need to have your OS Installed on the HDD first.
To resolve the issue, first delete the primary partition on the mSATA SSD and then install the ExpressCache software. The ExpressCache installer will automatically create the necessary caching partition on the mSATA SSD.
