A Few Words on How a PC Stores Presentations

The best way to visualize the physical and logical storage of files is to correlate computer concepts with real-world objects, which makes Windows file management much easier to understand. The Windows interface uses disk drives, folders, subfolders, and documents for file management.

A disk drive is analogous to an office filing cabinet. Like a filing cabinet, a disk drive is used to store documents that can contain presentations, spreadsheets, or databases. Each disk drive has a unique name. Typically, you access drives by referring to a corresponding letter, such as A, B, C, D, and so on. Each letter represents a distinct container—a separate filing cabinet—that's used to store information in your computer. Usually, the A: or B: drive is reserved for removable media, such as floppy disks. The C: drive letter designates your computer's hard drive. Other letters commonly represent additional drives—the D: drive can be assigned to the CD-ROM drive, and any additional letter in the alphabet is probably a remote networked drive.
