Hello friends i think you need not have to install a third party software because the windows 7 itself has a very good inbuilt software called as the bitlocker. The bitlocker uses one of the best data protection technology and hence you should use the bitlocker data encryption of windows 7 to hide your drives.

As far as i know the Kemo Data Security suite 2. 0 is the ultimate solution to your problem. This is a wonderful software when it comes to data security. If you want to keep your valuable data secured and protected from theft and prevents unauthorized access and if you want to conceal your confidential data.

I will suggest you to use Folder Security Personal to encrypt your drive since i have personally used this software and is quiet handy.It works with drive of all of FAT/FAT32/NTFS formats. Although this is a software for protecting the file but It also includes a proactive spyware defender, and is able to protect the Internet Explorer from being hijacked and to block installation of spyware, adware, and trojan horse etc.
