2 accessable partitions from windows?

I have a pc that was brought to me with windows 7 on it has c drive and another drive accessable the c drive is 0 of 48 gb free and then there is another drive that seems to have all the stuff on it. However, I removed the 2nd drive from the computer entirely and it still seems to have 2 partitions is all i can think of. One with windows system files which are on c: and the 2nd partition is the main drive? Doesnt really make any sense to me just wondering how that works, because im my experience i didnt think you could make for example 3 partitions and have them viewable as different drives under my computer????

I thought it was to boot different partitions and such how do you set this up towhere say you make 3 partitions and have it so that 1 drive has multiple partitions that are viewed in my computer as multiple hard drives?

Please type Disk Management in the Start button Search box, maximize the window, open Snipping Tool in Start Menu, draw a rectangular Snip around the listings and drive map showing all of your partitions. You may want to plug back in the second HD if you want advice on it.
