PostSubject: How to hide any drive through Command Prompt   Wed Oct 19, 2011 10:20 am

Have you ever thought of hiding any drive from your system so that no one could know about it. Suspect

You might have heard or even used a lot of software’s that might be able to do that, but if you are GEEK like me and want to do things by your own without using any third party software then this tutorial will show you how you can do it.

Well, there are 3 ways of doing this. In this tutorial we are covering command prompt way of doing it.

PROCEDURE

Step 1. Open Command Prompt, go to Start Menu > All Programs > Accessories > Command Prompt

Step 2. In the Command Prompt, type Diskpart and hit enter key. If UAC (User Account Control), dialog-box prompts then click Yes.

Step 3. Then type List Volume and press enter, this will produce the list of all drives.

Step 4. Now select the drive which you want to hide, you can either do this by typing Select Volume 1 (i.e. Volume Number) or by typing Select Volume C (i.e. Drive letter)

Step 5. To hide a drive, type Remove Letter C. Here, C is the drive letter than you want to hide. You can use any drive letter you want.

That’s it. You are done! C drive is now hidden. bounce

Step 2. To show the hidden drive type Assign Letter C and hit enter, now you can view C: drive in explorer.

That’s it. This is one of the three ways of hiding and un-hiding drives from explorer manually, for rest two stay tuned. wave
