Default how do i tell what partitions belong to what drive

hello. here is the situation. i have 2 drives installed in my tower. they are 80gb each. one drive is for the os and storage and the other drive is for recording audio onto. each drive has been divided into 4 partitions each for a total of 8 partitions. i do not want to record any audio onto my system drive or any of the partitions that belong to it. so how do i tell what partitions belong to each drive? or in other words, is there a way to tell what partitions belong to the "os drive" and what partitions belong to the "audio drive"? i would like to re-name my drives partitions so i clearly know what partitions i can and cant record onto.
thanks -jay

maskedman72 ,

The easiest way I can think of is : Right click on "My Computer>manage>disk management...
All your installed drives with their partition info will be displayed.
good luck,

thanks lemix,that is exactly what i was looking for. this brings me to 2 other questions.

1. is it possable to defrag a partition?
2. is it possable to remove/change alltogther/change the size of existing partitions?

You will have to defrag each partition seperatly. Just consider each as a different drive.
And get Partition Magic to do any changes you want to make.
