Using the SSD built in my Ideapad Y500

Hello,

I just formatted my Laptop after switching hard disks.

I bought a hybrid 2TB Hard drive (with 8GB SSD built in inside)

 

And I know the Y500 has a 16GB SSD built in as well.

So now my D drive is the 16GB SSD.

Windows is intalled in C drive (the normal HDD)

 

In the past I haven't used it at all,

But I wonder now how should I ?

 

Do I just install important applications on my D drive instead of C drive?

Or there is more to it?

 

Thank you in advance,

Elad.

Re: Using the SSD built in my Ideapad Y500

Thank you so much for the kind response.

 

However, in the meantime I got the impression I might have gotten it all wrong.

Instead of using the SSD, that I should use ExpressCache instead.

 

Meaning not allocating  myself the SSD drive, and only let the service use it.

 

Is that the right choice? Or it would be better to use the SSD as a functional ?

 

Thanks again,

Elad.
