Chapter 1. ✓ Start Here > The Structure of a Hard Disk

The Structure of a Hard Disk

Throughout this book, we'll talk about your hard disk and folders, and so it's a good idea before we begin to get a better sense of how a hard disk is organized.

Each hard disk is identified by a letter, most commonly, C. If you have more than one hard disk on your computer, they are identified by letters as well. So, for example, if you have two hard disks, one will be C and one will often be D. Your CD and/or DVD drives are assigned drive letters as well, and are often labeled E. In fact, you can have many drives, all the way up to Z.
