I though a logical drive:
The partitioning or division of a large hard drive into smaller units
like when you partition your disk into 2 (say one part for Linux and one part for windows). C: and D: would be your logical drives would they not?
However, according to a website:
* The use of logical drives and drive mappings. On the server, the main user areas are stored on drive D with subdirectories (or folders) of this drive. So the main path for a GCSE student might be something like:
To type this in takes time and mistakes can be made. By mapping
this path to a logical drive H:
makes it easier for the user. So there is only one physical drive but there can be many logical drives since each group of users will get a different mapping. Also to make it easier for the users we map the user's home directory back to the network home area.
But is this drive H: a logical drive? I thought it is just mapped network drive as a logical drives are partitions, this is just assigning a drive letter to a path.
