logical drive
Last modified: Monday, June 23, 2003 

A part of a physical disk drive that has been partitioned and allocated as an independent unit, and functions as a separate drive altogether. For example, one physical drive can be partitioned into drives F:, G:, and H:, each representing a separate logical drive but all still part of the one physical drive.

Using the logical drive hierarchy is one method of organizing large units of memory capacity into smaller units.

Contrast with physical drive.
