Windows 10: Data Hard Drive in This PC

    Data Hard Drive in This PC


    I got this PC yesterday and have noticed that there is a random empty drive in This PC. It says "762 GB free of 763 GB."
    Does this come with every OS and what is it used for?

    There's nothing about the computer to go on, no information about it. As strictly a guess I'd say if it's a new computer it may have an SSD [Solid State Drive] as C: and an HDD [Hard Disk Drive] as D: or a secondary drive. It should not be 'random' but it could be empty. SSDs are traditionally rather lower in capacity than HDDs although they are becoming higher in capacity as time marches on.
