managing my hybrid HDD/SSD drive with my new Y50

2014-11-20, 15:45 PM

band new Y50 with these on board

  • NVIDIA GeForce GTX 860M 2GB
  • Intel Core i7 4700HQ (2.40GHz)
  • 8GB Memory 1TB HDD 8GB SSD

When I got the machine it was partitioned into two drives:

  Windows8_OS (C:) 887GB

  Lenovo (D:) 24.9GB

 

I dont see any SSD drive in the eplorer nor in the Computer Management utility. I would like to understand what is stored on my SSD and how to best utilize this for best performance. I may want to run games/OS/applications from the SSD to get that quick read times.

 

Could someone explain to me how to get this set up, OR if it is already set up explain how to see is performance?

 

 

I am very please to be joining the Lenovo family!!

Please advise.

The hdd+SDD is a whole unit drive. It is known as an SSHD by Seagate. The SSD part is use for caching only.. It is not accessible by users. So don't worry about it.
