    You're likely looking at the SSD in your screenshot above, I'd expect it to be a boot disk and it's the right sort of size for an SSD
    I have an SSD as a system disk, when I get home form work tonight I'll have a poke around to see how it can be discerned as an SSD

    Thanks appreciated it , yes it is a boot disk.

    Go to the drop down menu at the bottom and see if there is an entry for your SSD (it will likely be P0)

    @fredc: don't worry about it too much. As it's a laptop and you only have 1 drive (SSD) it is your Windows boot and primary drive. Windows will know it's an SSD and will adjust settings accordingly to the drive. The only concern you should have and should not be neglected is ensuring proper backups of your important data (ie. documents, photos, videos) on the drive.

    Edit: but if you really want to know if it is an SSD, download CrystalDiskInfo @robgr mentioned. It will show it is a HDD or SSD.
