HP PCs - Partitioning and Naming Drives (Windows 10, 8)

This document is for HP and Compaq computers with Windows 10 or Windows 8.
This document explains what drives, partitions, and volumes are, as well as how to add and delete partitions.
note:
On HP business computers, the partitioning structure might be defined in computer management in business-related environments.

Understanding drives and partitions

A drive is a physical storage device such as a hard disk drive (HDD), solid state drive (SSD), or removable USB flash drive. A partition is an area of the drive that can be formatted and assigned a drive letter. A volume refers to a storage area on a partition of a drive. The terms partition and volume are often used interchangeably.
HP and Compaq computers come with a Windows (C) or C: drive, which is the partition for Windows and storing your files.
The following sections describe how to work with drives and partitions including how to add new drive letters, and create and remove partitions.
