What is PQSERVICE drive/partition? Thankyou

Hi all, whilst reading another thread on PCA site I decided to have a look at the Disk managenet option it mentioned.

I have found C drive: D drive and PQSERVICE (drive?)

I know my laptop HD is partitioned into two, the C and the D drive but what is the PQSERVICE drive and why does it show up in Disc Management but not My Computer?

Many thanks,
