What is the difference between drive a and drive B?

What does A and B mean in disk partitioning?

  • A and B are usually reserved for floppy disk drives, but if your computer does not have floppy disk drives, you can assign A and B to volumes .". So when I built a new computer recently with two internal drives, one for the OS and one for data, I thought, hey!, I'll make my data drive "A".

How do I assign A and B to a drive?

  • “You can assign the letters C through Z to each drive on your computer. A and B are usually reserved for floppy disk drives, but if your computer does not have floppy disk drives, you can assign A and B to volumes.”.

How do I map a drive as B?

  • You can map a drive as B: if you want. Under computer management, go to storage/disk management. Right click the drive you want and choose "change drive letter/paths" You should be able to select B: as an option. I use the B drive for mapping network drives when I've run out of other letters (surprisingly easy to do with USB hubs and such).
