    Answers:

    A physical drive is drive tha you can physically see in the computer system itself. That is the gadget itself. Logic drive is inside the physical drive and this is the portion of the drive that stores data the user is using. To configure it you must update it on the BIOS.

    A physical hard drives is exactly that - a physical unit that can be handled. It is also referred to as a hard drive or HDD (Hard Drive Device)


    A logical drive is a subdivision of a physical hard drive and is created using a disk partitioning programme.

    A logical drive is unique since it can only be used for storage - it cannot be bootable or active.
    A logical drive can only exist within a specialised partition known as an extended partition.
    A logical drive can only be created on a physical hard drive - not on a removable disk because of technical reasons.

    According to Narender kumar,
    "hard disk is a physical drive & a partition drive is logical drive"

    This may not be correct always. You can have physical partition also. Logical drive is a virtualization concept where one or more physical partitions or disks combined to form a volume group and then if a partition is created on the volume group, then we call it it as logical drive. This is better understood when working with UNIX based operating systems
