Windows 7: Storage Driver?

Storage Driver?

Hello !

Just wondering, what is a storage driver?
I've though it was something to do with my harddisks, so i've been checking on OCZ and WD websites, but found no drivers.

So what is it? Do I need it? Of course, Windows is probably using the default one!

Best Regards,
