    It means that your one physical hard drive is split into several logical drives that Windows assigns drive letters to.

    Think of it in these terms - a PHYSICAL drive is the actual drive itself...a Logical drive is a portion of one of those PHYSICAL drives...but it can also be the whole drive as well, it depends on how large you set the logical drive to be...but I think Nodsu just said that...
