SSD vs HDD report?


  • Is there a way to determine if a SSD or HDD is installed on machines managed by CongifMgr?

  • To my knowledge, Windows has no way of explicitly identifying the two apart and thus ConfigMgr has no way either - a hard disk is a hard disk is a hard disk.

    Depending on how many models of SSDs you have deployed in your organization, you could identify the SSDs by either caption or PNPDeviceID though (both from Win32_DiskDrive) -- caption is not collected by default so if you were going to use that you'd have to enable it in SMS_DEF.mof.
