    Grammar question - the word "TO"

    Can I end a sentence with the word "TO"? For example:

    Select the drive you connected to.

    I think that drive refers to either a CD drive, Hard Disk drive, or other computer/device related drives. I need more context.

    If I may make a guess, I would say that it's computer related and is instructing the person to somehow select or indicate the drive on the computer (C drive, external hard drive etc) that they are currently connected to or which they have a peripheral piece of hardware connected to.

    We haven't heard back from chandbr yet (not even a click on the Like button), but I think the main thrust of the question was

    'Can I end a sentence with the word "to"?' (Already answered: yes.)

    Here are some more examples:

    'Make another appointment if you need to.'

    'Do whatever you have to.'

    'What's the world coming to?'
