    Drive B is for a floppy drive if you have one.....

    Fastco is quite correct.

    Letters A and B are reserved for floppy drives.

    If you had two floppy drives, one would have the drive letter "A", while the other would be assigned the drive letter "B".

    Back in the old days, they had something called a 5 1/2 floppy drive. The disks were very flat, and floppy, hence the name. These floppy drives were very large, and they could not hold much information. They took it out, and they just left the letter there.
