Hide Hard Drive Partitions In Windows

Hide Hard Drive Partitions In Windows

If you want to hide any partition of your hard disk just follow these simple steps.

1. Goto Start > Run and type diskpart

A DOS window will appear with following description


2. Then type list volume

All partitions will be listed, there will be also a volume number for each partitions

3. Suppose you want to hide drive E:, type select volume 3 (Here 3 is the volume number of E:, in your pc it may vary). A message will now appear in the window saing "Volume 3 is the selected volume".

4. Now type remove letter E . You may have to reboot the computer. Diskpart will remove the letter. Since Windows XP doesn't have the capability to identify the unknown volume, it won't display or show results from it. To access the content of the hidden drive, repeat the process, but in the foruth step, replace remove to assign, ie., assign letter E.

  1. Another way to hide windows drive is from computer management -> disk management. Choose the drive, right click and select "change drive letter and path". It will show the current drive letter. Just click on remove and the drive letter will be gone and the drive will disappear from your browser.
    You can bring it back by assigning a drive letter again to that drive.
