Our Windows 10 computer has a disk drive, which can be a traditional HDD format hard drive or a solid-state drive, the SSD. The differences between the two are remarkable. Since an SSD allows a much faster operation in general, although they usually have somewhat less capacity. But many users do not know which one they have on their computer.

Normally, the specifications of all Windows 10 computers indicate the type of drive used in that case. But there are people who may at a certain time do not remember. Luckily, there is a simple way to check it on the computer itself.
