Default Core Hardware Quiz #3

This kinda falls between Hardware and Software but here goes......


How many logical drives can be created by using Microsoft operating systems?


Answer: B - 23

Explanation: 26 letters of the alphabet minus the letters A, B and whatever the system partition is in this case (usually C). The questioned asked how many could be made within a Windows OS. So, this is saying that a Windows system already exists.



***NOTE***
Please DO NOT post the answer in this thread as other users may wish to have the same opportunity to answer the question. The poll will be closed in 2 days and the answer may be discussed after the poll has been closed.

Any post containing any answer (correct or incorrect) or a hint toward the answer will be removed.


Thanks!

-Mike

there is only 1 answer that even comes close, but i still not sure why is there an extra drive letter missing because a hard disk does not require you to make any primary partitions and i don't think drive C is reserved.

so i am wondering where the hell this missing drive letter is going to. it seems like the answer is 1 off...hmm gonna have to check with google

-edit
oh right you asked for MS OS, i guess it is reserved just so we're clear on this.....i technically didn't cheat okay
