How to View the D Drive

Computer designers usually divide hard disks into a number of partitions to manage files and folders effectively. Partitions receive a drive letter so that operating systems can identify them. Usually, operating systems such as Windows 7 and Windows Vista are present on the C drive, but a multi-boot system can also have an operating system on the D drive. If you wish to see the contents inside the D drive, you can access it using Windows Explorer.

Use Windows Explorer to access the D drive on your hard disk.
