There is a Very Interesting Reason behind this C Domination over the other Letters.
Why is ‘C’ the default drive letter rather than ‘A’, which would make more sense by the tradition?
HERE IS THE ANSWER FOR ALL YOUR QUESTION:
Early PCs didn’t usually come with internal mass-storage devices due to its high cost. Instead, they generally used “floppy” disk reader to read 5 1/4″ floppy disks, initially labelled as “A” in Microsoft Disk Operating System (MS-DOS) and other Operating Systems. Some systems came with two such floppy disk drives requiring the need for a “B” letter.
When hard disk drives became the standard for Storage in most PCs in the later 1980s, as the first two letters were already commonly used for those floppy drives, they logically labelled the third storage device “C”. Times changed and eventually, floppy disk drives were entirely removed from computers, but somehow the label ‘C’ Stuck with hard disk drives not removed. In fact, most Windows computers come with the first partition labelled as ‘Local Disk C:’ for that same reason.
