Which sata port = which drive?

In windows, is it possible to know which ssd is connected to which data port?

sisoft sandra will tell you the controller and bus but I don’t know how to translate this into which data port.

I also know of disk management properties>details>location

Neither of those seem to translate to a particular port that I can tell.
Just for example trying this on my pc with multiple drives, I know which are which based on brand and capacity, but if I was going to a pc I never knew of, I guess you just do trial and error?

Best bet in [physically] identifying SATA connection(s), be from the mainboards manual

in the device properties. takes a bit of digging. but i think it tells you in one of the dropdowns.
(just checked) yeah its listed as bus number. under the hardware tab of a drive properties tab.

the other place is bios. it may list the drives in order of which sata they are connected to.

Use Passmark Disk Utility. It will tell you which SATA port the drive is plugged into.
