Windows 7: Creating Data Volume in Hybrid SSD Intel Rapid Storage Technology

Creating Data Volume in Hybrid SSD Intel Rapid Storage Technology

Skill Level: Beginner
Dell Inspiron i14z Ultrabook 500gb Hybrid SSD

Ok, I reinstalled Windows 7, it detected two hard drives, one 32gb and other 466gb, I installed the Windows 7 on the 466GB and installed all the drivers. On the Intel Rapid Storage Technology, Storage View, the SSD has 30GB Cache Volume but does not have any Data Volume like it is supposed to: Picture Below:

How do I create Data Volume? Like it is supposed to look like this:

Notice it has Data Volume AND Cache Volume split in the SSD

Thank you

Ok so from what i understand is a Hybrid SSD doesnt hold data on the "solid" part of the drive the reason its showing 30gb cache on SSD and 466gb on the Mechanical part is because ALL data is stored on the mechanical part of the drive, once data is being accessed it writes it to the cache to allow it to access faster the same method is used on the MaxRevo PCI-E 1TB Hybrid drives.

Hopefully you understand that, but the bottom line is a hybrid SSD/HDD will not allow a Data partition to be created/accessed by any means other than the cache.
