    Post iMac fusion drive crashed

    I bought iMac last year that had 1tb fusion drive. After installing OS from the scratch, iMac began to crash while working on 2-3 apps simultaneously. I tried resetting NVRAM and SMC several times but only SSD is visible in recovery partition. I am wondering if there is any possible way to fix fusion drive. How can I get both SSD and HDD to show up?

    Sorry for the late response. Is your hard drive showing up in the Disk Utility app (Applications > Utilities > Disk Utility) ? It will only be listed as a single drive....the SSD part of a Fusion Drive is not supposed to be user accessible, and is managed by the system for storing system files, files and apps that you use on a regular basis so that they can be retrieved quicker. Let me know and then we can delve a bit deeper.
