G'day all,
I have just purchased a new Evo 850 1TB SSD to slot into my Hack to use specifically for FCPX as the HDD is just not fast enough for read/write. I have 2 x 120GB SSD drives installed (among other drives), one is my boot loader with El Cap installed and one is my Windows 10 install drive. I do not use Windows on this computer as I have another PC one for that.

My question is, other than trial and error (hope I pull the correct drive first shot) how do I determine which physical drive is which once I open up the computer? I don't have any spare bays left so I want to replace the Win 10 drive with the new Evo SSD.

Can I find the serial number in El Cap and match it to the printed number on the drive? If so, how?

Cheers in advance

J
