Acer Predator Helios 300 hard drive

RyevalRyeval Member Posts: 1

The laptop is only using my SSD, and when I look at my pc (in explorer) I also only see the SDD. On other laptops, I had the choice of saving things to the SSD or the standard hard drive, how do I do that for this laptop

    press windows key logo

    type Disk management

    click on Create or format partition (result)

     

    look if the HDD is listed or only the SSD appears, if the HDD is listed (normally on Disk1), right click it and choose to format.

    format as NTFS.

    I'm not an Acer employee.

    Yes, from disk management, you need to allocate the unallocated space. The HDD should appear there.

    Always post the following characterisitcs of the device:
    -Model number
    -Part number(not required, but helpful)
    -CPU
    -GPU
    -Operating system

    Helios 300 and Nitro 5 users DO NOT update the BIOS to version 1.22 if you don't want the keyboard's backlight to turn off after 30 seconds even when the device is plugged in.
