Question about Western Digital Caviar WD1600 (1600YD) 160 GB Hard Drive
Each drive on your machine is assigned a letter.
Floppy drives if you have them are A: and B:
The System drive is typically C: but does not have to be
If you have a CD drive it will be assigned a letter as well say D:
If you have a USB flash disc attached it too will have been assigned a letter such as E:
However, you hard drive may have been partitioned that is split into smaller sizes. So although you have one drive you may have more than 1 letter assigned to it.
If you are on windows click on the Start button, Righ click on My Computer or Computer (depends on your version of Windows) and select manage
Select Disk Management
(wait until the page changes)
It will tell you what each letter represents
True for Vista and later - Can't remember if it works on XP - I think it does
