    You can also mount the entire drive in a folder in other drive. Doing this will hide the drive from my computer but still you will be able to use the drive's entire space for storage. The drive will appear just as a simple folder but the capacity of the entire drive can be used.

    • To do this go to Disk Management
    • Remove the drive letter
    • Again right-click on the drive and click : Change Drive Letter and Path
    • Now click add and select the option which says: Mount in the following empty NTFS folder.
    • Now browse to the desired location and select an empty folder or add a new folder.
    • Click Ok twice and close disk management.
    • You can check the folder which you used to mount the partition to.

    thanks.
    Which operating system have you installed in your machine? If it is windows 7 then try to open any folder and then at the top click Organize which is on the left and then go to Folder and search options and then click on View and then select show hidden files, folders and drives. Hope that helps you out.
