    C: and I: are volume assignments by Windows.

    To see all volumes open administrative command prompt and type or copy and paste:

    diskpart
    lis vol

    Some drive letters can be changed:

    The drive label can be anything you want it to be. You can right-click the drive, Properties then on the General tab you can name or rename a drive.
