    star Hide the Partitions

    This trick is for all those people who want to hide tons of data into their box. So here it is, if you have very important data in your hard drive placed in some partition which you do not want anybody to access then this trick is only for you!

    Just click on start>run type gpedit.msc, now navigate through user configuration> administrative templates > windows components> windows explorer, now double click on “Hide these specified drives in My Computer” modify it accordingly then just below you will find another option “Prevent access to drives from My Computer”, double click on this option and modify it accordingly.
    To make it visible again select "disable" by double clicking on the “Hide these specified drives in My Computer” option.

    Re: Hide the Partitions

    Here's an easy way to hide partitions / CD-ROM under Windows 2000/XP:

    - Right click on the icon "My Computer" and select "manage" in the menu.
    (Also available in "Control Panel / Administrative Tools / Computer Management")
    Left-Click on "Disk Management"
    - Right click the partition you want to disappear and choose "change drive letter and paths".
    - Click on "delete" to delete the drive letter.
    - Confirm "yes" when the message "Remove the drive letter of a certain program may stop working ..."
