Hi, i have a e530, the specs say it comes with a 16gb ssd drive and a 500gb hdd, i would have expected the os to be installed on the ssd drive giving that its much faster, i am guessing its not though?
infact i am really not sure where the drive is, or how i even use it if i cannot see it anywhere?
this is the first time i have used ssd so i dont know if i am missunderstanding it's use?
here is a screen shot of my disk management window:
Can anyone advice me on what is correct and if i am thiking abou this the wrong way?
does the above screen shot look correct?

Thank you for your replies, in my programs in control panel express cache is listed as installed, i don't seem to see an actual program i can open for it though to see the status?

You can go --
Control Panel ->Accessories->Run->type ExpressCache + Enter
Windows Explorer->Program Files->Condusiv Technologies->ExpressCache->ExpressCache + Enter
Bare in mind that if you flush the cache it will take several reboots/work sessions to fill again.
Hope that helps some.

i have found the program, when i run it it doesnt show me any status though, it opens very briefly then closes on its own, it doesnt even stay open long enough for me to see anything.

Well, I would suggest that you download a copy but it requires a product ID found in the front of the ssd's manual to complete installation. Perhaps others have an idea.

I have just taken a screen shot from my intel rst app, am i right in thinking that on the ssd part next to usage, it should say accelerated if it was being used as cache?
or does it look the same on other peoples?

I just installed an ssd in my Wlan slot today, I have an E430 which supports the SSD but didn't come with one. With the express cache, you can see if it is working by navigating to the C:\Program Files\Condusiv Technologies\Express Cache and opening up an Admin CMD box. Type in "eccmd.exe -info" Without the quote marks and it will show the drive, how much incease in cache(% of increase), etc... Hope this helps. Oh yah, the intel radid boost has nothing to do with cache (though apparently they both share space(separate partitions) on the same ssd). It is for a quick return from sleep or hybernation, please don't confuse the two. Remember to google stuff and Read, Read, Read.....
