Size of SSD shows only 8GB?



I recently bought a U410 Lenovo laptop which comes with 32 GB SSD and 500GB hard disk.But I was trying to find out the capacity of SSD. In command prompt, I typed diskpart and then I typed list disk. This is what I got.


DISKPART> list disk

Disk ### Status   Size    Free    Dyn   Gpt
-------- ------ ------- ------- ------- ---
Disk 0   Online   8 GB    0 B
Disk 1   Online 465 GB  366 GB



It seems to me that disk 0 is my SSD and it has only 8 GB capacity. I also ran the application Disk Management. It shows Disk 0 has 8 GB and Disk 1 has 465.76 GB.


My question is - where is the remaining 24GB of SSD?

Re: Size of SSD shows only 8GB?

From what I know, 24 GB is used as cache. I just reinstalled Windows 7 on to a new drive and changed the SATA controller setting to AHCI, allowing me to see the 32 GB SSD alone.
