I just purchased an Envey Laptop. How can I confirm how much SSD memory it has?

Not sure I understand. If you mean can you see if it has a mSATA or mSSD drive go to computer right click and select manage and then disk management open it up and let us know what it shows.

Thanks for your prompt response.

Attached is a screen capture of what I get folloing your instructions displaying disk management.

I can't recognize anything that should represent the build in 24GB of SSD memory. Please advise .

Thanks,

Rudi

In use the SSD combines with the main hard drive. Do you have an Intel Rapid Storage program on the computer? If so open it and see if it shows the SSD

Intel Rapid Start I mean

Thanks, that did it, it shows a ssm memory from Liteonit, I presume that is the manufacurer.

Related question, I understand that the SSD memory is used to run the OS. I presume that mean that the OS or part of it is laded into SSM? and if yes when I am ready to reinstall my OS, which I do every 3 years or so to speed up my computer, how I know which part of the OS to load into SSM?

Thanks in advance,

Rudi

It just handles it. There is nothing for you to set as far as that is concerned. Intel Rapid Start moves the files that are accessed most frequently onto the SSD for fast access and it changes on the fly.

Thank you!!, that answers my question for now.

 

Regardfs,

Rudi
