    I recently purchased a refurbished Dell OptiPlex 9020 Mini Tower which came with a 128 GB SSD.

    From top to bottom, this information is on its sticker:
    OEM SSD
    128 GB SATA III SSD
    OSSD128GBTSS2
    S/N PT19070510386
    317925M
    RoHS
    Made in China

    The storage drive description in the Device Manager and in the BIOS is listed as:
    OSSD128GBTSS2

    I did a Google search on that description and came up empty.

    I've never bought or seen a storage drive which didn't have a brand name and model number, so this has got me baffled. :confused:

    I can usually dig up something but I've come up empty, Frank.
    I searched for brands of 128GB SATA III ssds. This starts with O if I look at OSSD128GBTSS2 and ends with TSS2 if I remove the "description" SSD 128GB.

    I decided to use that SSD in my Dell Precision M6400 WorkStation 17.3" laptop, which I'm now using for testing Windows XP Pro SP3 32-bit.
    It's made a big difference in the startup time and in performing certain functions, so I'm glad I swapped out the HDD for that SSD.
    I'd still like to get it correctly identified though.

    I've already done that with Piriform Speccy 1.32.740
    It also shows that SSD as OSSD128GBTSS2

    You can look in Device Manager > disk's driver > Properties > Details tab > Property pull down: Hardware IDs, You can go google search by any of the given ones.

    I've tried a number of things, but I have to admit I haven't tried the Details - Hardware Ids procedure.
    I'll remember to do that the next time I remove my laptop from the computer storage room to update it.
    Thanks.
