    Mm, worth researching... and checking for RAID-specific experiences. Maybe you can start a new thread with RAID in the title so people with that expertise will see it?

    Same situation here. after upgrade from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10, only one pair of RAID 0 disks identified as Solid State Drive.

    1st pair: 2 x WD 500 GB SATA 3 > has 4 partitions, all of them identified as "Solid state drive"
    2nd pair: 2 x Seagate 500 GB SATA 3 > has 2 partitions, all of them identified as "Hard disk drive"
    3rd pair: 2 x Seagate 500 GB SATA 2 > has 2 partitions, all of them identified as "Hard disk drive"
    All pairs on the same controller.

    I just renamed the disk, under disk properties, General tab, and it correctly identified mine as not an ssd.

    Just to say thank you. Initialized HP Laptop and reloaded Windows 10. Within 24 hours Drive F appeared. Would not allow me to optimize it. Ran "WinSat formal" and noticed Drive F was still appearing in Windows Explorer, but as soon as I rebooted, it was gone.
