It's nothing. You can change the name of the C:\ drive to anything you like. Click on the Start menu and type in disk. Once the options populate, choose Create and format hard disk partitions. Once the app loads, click on the C:\ drive to highlight it, and then right-click on it and choose Properties. From there, you can change the name to anything you like, e.g. Win 10 OS.
