8_Pints Tech: Hard drive partitions - why? (42) RE: Tech: Hard drive partitions - why? 09 Dec 07

Nick asked "By the way what have people got against B: drives?"

In the early days there were no hard drives, merely a couple of floppy diskette (remember those?) drives. So the standard IBM MSDOS configuration had Drive A and B representing these, and Drive C representing the Hard Drive when it finally appeared.
