Hide Any Drive on Your Computer


hide driveMost Gurus must have wondered if there exists a way without using software to Hide A Drive completely so that it cannot be viewed or accessed without unlocking it. Well for those who have and who haven't yet, here is a easiest method on How To Hide Any Drive In Just 3 Steps.

Here we go, follow these 3 simple steps:

In my example I will hide Drive Volume G:
unhidden drive

After following these 3 steps:
hidden drive

01. Go To Start --> Run or use Win+R keys and type this and press Ok
cmd

start menu
run command in windows 7
run command

For Vista/Windows 7
windows 7 run box

02. This will open Command Prompt for you. Now type below text and press Enter:
diskpart

command prompt

Note: In Window Vista and higher you will get a security warning, bypass it clicking on allowing.


Once in Diskpart type below text and press Enter:
list volume

command prompt

This will list all the partitions. Now as in my example I want to Hide Partition G: and it has Volume no. 10. So my next command will be:
select volume 10


Remember to change 10 with the volume number of your partition you want to hide and press Enter:
command prompt


03. Now as in my example I am hiding drive G: so my last command will be below and then press Enter:
remove letter G

command prompt

All done. Now open your computer and see that drive is made hidden:
hidden drive


Now to make a drive Unhidden

Follow first 2 steps as such but in step 3 instead of remove letter G use below command:
assign letter G

command prompt

For Vista/Windows 7
The commands becomes slightly different here:
assign letter=G

hidden drive

You have successfully unlocked the Hidden Drive.

Hope this Helps. Please leave a reply if I am not clear anywhere, I would help you out
