At the point when you open your record file on your Windows PC, you might have seen that your Windows working framework utilizes the letter ‘C’. Albeit nobody has at any point considered it, it really looks extremely ridiculous since the letters in order request begin from the letter ‘A’, and in view of normal reasoning, one would have allocated the letter ‘A’ for any request. So for what reason does our local disk drive is called ‘local Disk C’ rather than ‘local Disk A’?
Indeed, this goes way back to the beginning of individualized computing when MS-DOS was viewed as the major working framework. Back then, the normal PC didn’t have hard drives as they were profoundly costly and utilized for the most part in the most top of the line PCs. Accordingly, the normal shopper needed to run their working frameworks and different projects straightforwardly by means of floppy disks. For these floppy disks, drive A and B were allocated. At the end of the day, during the 1980s pretty much every PC accompanied just two floppy drives which assumed a colossal part in running MS-DOS at that point.
Gradually as hard drives turned out to be more reasonable, PCs began taking on them into their frameworks and subsequently a held drive was made for it with the letter ‘C’. However, there have been PCs in the past that have had three floppy drives rather than two yet later on the third drive was constantly held for the hard circle.
So as Windows which we utilized today really depended on MS-DOS, Microsoft has consistently embraced utilizing the ‘C drive’ to store the OS. With Windows XP being a well known OS in those days, it was decently established that ‘Floppy disk A’ was utilized for floppy disks. In any case, in the present PCs, it is extremely uncommon that you would perceive any work area as having a floppy drive. Indeed, even such work area cases don’t exist any longer.
Subsequently, Microsoft has consistently adhered to the letter ‘C’ and many projects have accepted the area of ‘local disk C’ as the all-around information and introduce different documents.
Presently that doesn’t mean you can’t change the letter, you could just make a beeline for your PC’s disk the board and essentially change the letter from C to A yet be cautioned as changing the letter implies that all projects that were introduced in that drive might get corrupted.
