Behind the reason is In windows operating system A & B were reserved for floppy disk it means in Previous days no special memory was made for the Computer system.

So external Memory is necessary for Computer systems to store the data/file or to install the ISO file.

In those days computer system, external disks have to connect by User while running the system device that is called Floppy disk.

The First floppy disk given name by A Drives and Next 2 Floppy disk given a name by B Drives.

These 2 floppy disks are first used in computers to make it easier to perform tasks like copy a file from one drive to another drive.

Hence, the floppy disks were reserved A & B Drives.

Similarly, Next one Drive came after the Reserved floppy disk is Replaced & Hard Disk Drive has given by default name C drive.
