What is the local disk drive called "D"?

I keep getting information from a local disk drive and have no idea what or where it is.

"Local disk" is your hard drive. Sometimes hard drives are a single partition (C drive); sometimes they are partitioned (C and D drives).

Your hard drive may be partitioned into "C" and "D", or it may just be a "C" drive. If you have another hard drive installed, this will become "G" or "D" depending on partitioning of the first drive. "E" and "F" are disk drives.

Generally your DVD/CD drive is called Drive D. Your hard drive (disk) is C. Perhaps you have a disc in the drive you forgot about.


Answer by  Miika (23)

Your computer can have several hard disks. First one is allways C and the second D. D can be a physical drive or a second partition of the first drive.

A D: drive is the disc drive, it is the place where you would start a CD that you put in there. For windows click My Computer for it.
