If you think of it, there are 26 letters in the English Alphabet; thus, it would make more sense for local drives on Windows to begin from A. But it starts from C, and why is that? Users can dissect their choices to put data on logical local drives on Windows. The drives on windows are 'C,' 'D,' 'E,' and 'F' to store user data on them. Furthermore, the "C" disc is now designated as the universal local drive on the Windows operating system. Also, the reason that all the installation of new programs proceeds here by default backs the universal statement.
