How to identify in which drive is Windows?

How to identify in which drive is Windows?

I'm using Ping - Backup system, which is Linux based. But it can be used to backup Windows partitions too.
It must be accessed from a bootable media.
So my problem is it shows the drives named as "sda1, sda2, sdb1, etc". And even though it also shows their names, I'm pretty sure I didn't see one for the C: drive.

Thanks guys,

I found it!

Yep, that's usually the case, but not always. On most systems, you could simply go by whichever is the biggest. That would not be the case, though, usually if you also have a "data" drive or partition.

"But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ." 1 Corinthians 15:57
