I have a partition on my 2nd HDD labeled F: which is my windows vista backup and I want to hide it so you can't even see it but when I attempted these steps I got choices A, B, C, and D for drive letters but that was it. I have a C: and D: (D: is the big partition on the 2nd HDD) and F: (small partition on 2nd HDD) Any clue how I can hide this backup drive?

Hi Poisonpanik,

You will just need to do the manual way instead in METHOD TWO. Dot Decimal and type 32 (for F: drive) in step 5C.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Hi Gixykings,

I have a few questions first.

What type of drive is it?

Did you dot Decimal in the Modify window and type 33554432?

Did you restart the computer afterwards to apply the changes?

Hello Ashok, and welcome to Vista Forums.

I suppose that you could hide all of the hard drives to do so. :geek:

Thank you for the 15000th posts congratulations, :party:

Oh, sorry Jeyessh. I misunderstood what you wanted.

You can do this by using the manual option in Method Two. When you get to step 5C, dot Decimal and use 32 for the F drive in the Note under that step.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Hello Techkidguru, and welcome to Vista Forums.

Sorry, not that I am aware of. You could change the permission level of the drives to not Allow other users access though.

1. Right click on the drive and click on Properties.
2. Click on the Security tab.
3. Click on the Edit button.
4. Select a User Name or user Group.
5. Check all of the Deny boxes.
WARNING: Do not include your user name or (Administrators) Group, or you will not have access.

6. Repeat step 4 & 5 for any other user name or group that you do not want to have access.
7. Click OK.

Hello t0cableguy, and welcome to Vista Forums.

Since you have it set with ReadyBoost turned on for it, it may not let it be hidden. As a test, turn off ReadyBoost for the the I: drive and see if you can hide it then.
