PostSubject: How to hide any drive through Windows Registry   Fri Oct 21, 2011 11:20 am

We have already talked about the way to hide a drive from being displayed in my computer by using Command Prompt. (Get it here.)

As I told earlier there're 3 ways to do that. So, here comes the second one.


Step 1. Open Registry Editor. Click Start -> Run type regedit in the box and click OK.

Step 2. Navigate to:


Step 3. From the Menu, navigate to Edit -> New -> DWORD Value

Step 4. Name the New Value NoDrives.

Step 5. Next, Right click NoDrives and select Modify, now check the Decimal option and under Value Data enter a decimal value for the drive you would like to hide. For example to hide C you would enter 4. See the list below for more values:

  • A=1
  • B=2
  • C=4
  • D=8
  • E=16
  • F=32
  • G=64
  • H=128
  • I=256

Step 6. Click OK once finished and restart your PC to verify the drive letter is no longer displayed.

NOTE : You can delete the key that was created to display the drive again.

Remarks: The drive can still be accessed from explorer by typing in the drive letter. As editing the system registry to hide the drive letter you should proceed with caution, as it is possible to do irreversible damage to your system if you make a mistake.

Stay tuned for the third way to hide a drive manually! :D
