Hey guys im new to the forums and have a quick question. I have an HP Envy 15 Laptop with a 750 GB hybrid hard drive. This type of drive essentially stores the windows start up files and other commonly used files in the solid state portion of the drive so they start up and perform quicker. Furthermore my school offer a free windows 8 upgrade program which I would like to take advantage of. My question to you is will upgrading to windows 8 render this function of my hard drive useless? Any advice on the matter is greatly appreciated.
