    Hi guys, sorry if this is stupid.

    How do I navigate to my fusion drive, so I can what is actually on it?

    I also had to wipe my new imac and reinstall. Will it have reinstalled OSX on the SSD portion of my drive? How can I check?>

    Thanks and apologies.

    Everything is on it. Fusion Drive is a single volume made up by a HDD and an SSD. When you click Finder and it shows all your files, they're all on the Fusion Drive.

    Everything you install on the volume goes to the SSD first and I believe the OS always stays there. I'm sure you can check through the terminal somehow, but so long as in the storage section of About This Mac it shows something like this:

    It's working fine.

    Folks, unless you're crazy OCD about how your computer runs (in which case I'm surprised you're an Apple fan), just forget you have something special called a fusion drive and just think of your Mac as having 1 really fast HDD.
