HDD detected as SSD

Recommended Posts

yeah, sadly this is happening with all the latest builds of Speccy, Dedraggler and CCleaner - but not for all users.

whereas the old versions weren't picking up you had a SSD, now some users are finding the new versions are falsely telling them they do now own a phantom SSD.

looking on the bright side, at least Piriform are finally tackling the long overdue problem of wrongly (or not even) detecting SSD's.
the Admin team is aware of the issue.

Just installed V 1.32.740 of Speccy and the SSD/HDD problem is still the there.  Already rolled back Defraggler to V 2.21.993 as well for the same reason.

Is this being worked on??

No, last word I heard from Admins (about 18months ago) was that the issue could not be repeated in the test labs (or something like that).

there was a rumour they were thinking about maybe putting in some sort of manual, user-controlled switch, that would tell Speccy/DF/CC what your drive types really were but, well, we are still waiting on that too.

Don't know what they're looking for.  Defraggler V 2.21.993 that I reverted back to identifies all my drives correctly.

That means that the code in there is accurate and could be reused.  Boggles the mind.

Just had this crop up. After reading a history of mystery regarding the resolution: Color me UnImpressed. This is a core function. No excuse.
