SSD + HD? OMEN 870-135VX

Operating System: Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

So I ordered the Omen 870-135vx, specs say it comes with "256 SSD + 2tb HD".   I got two different answer when calling HP as to if its 2 separate drives or one hybrid.   Anyone out there this computer?


I do alot of 3D architectural rendering on my current PC which points to thousands of textures located in organized folders on the C: drive.  If the new SSD is now the C drive it will be way to small.   Moving these textures to another drive letter will break the file and I would have to manually relink hundreds of files.  Can anyone tell me of the SSD drive that comes with this computer is used as the C drive?  Or is it used as just start up cache?

Welcome to the HP Forums!


I have read your post and understand that you need assistance in understanding the hard drive specifications of the PC. I will definitely help you.


As you have checked, the PC has 2 hard drives of which the SSD is programmed for the operating system and the 2 TB hard drive is for storage.

It’s your convenience to which you can use both of them for your custom needs.


Hope that answers your question. Let me know for more.




Glad to help you. I work for HP

They are 2 different drives. SSD being the main drive. Might want to cancel that order if you want a bigger ssd drive as the main one.
