    if you had multiple local hardrives they would be listed under local drives. Drive c is ur only local drive Im assuming.

    If the drive appears in My Computer as "Local Hard Drive", it is an unlabeled volume.

    It sounds like you have one hard disk, with two different names, depending on the application doing the viewing. :)

    I started to post and decided to look at mine. I have a 2nd HD with 4 partitions, I see they are all listed as "Local Drives" as well as individually.

    You can do a PrtScr and paste the result into almost any graphic application, I happen to use Paint Shop Pro for mine.

    Note that if you hold the Alt key while pressing PrtScr, you'll get only the contents of the active window, which is useful some of the time. For instance:

    Oops, missed the picture! :D
