In This post I’ll show you how you can hide the drive and access from your desired secrete location that can be hided or customized.
How to Hide the Partition/drive without any software
First of all you need be admin of the Windows 7 PC. Yes, you are let’s begin
Hit start button and Type Create format and hit enter to open Disk management
Select the drive there and right click on it
Here I took a test drive of 2 GB for demonstration with drive latter B:/
From the context menu select Change the drive latter or path
Now select the drive latter and remove it.
Select yes if it show you the warning. (Don’t worry your data will be safe)
Now your drive won’t be visible in My computer.
Don’t panic, your data is still safe and can be accessed
For this make a Folder in any other drive/location
Again Right click on drive you left and click change or remove drive latter or path.
Now click on Add
You’ll get two options, select Mount NTFS folder
Select browse and choose that folder you have made for it.
And click ok and exit the Disk management
Now you can access all your drive’s data from that folder.
Additionally you can change icon/ Make it read only or Hidden
Not only this; On clicking its properties, you will also find the option for properties of the drive to make it defragment/check for errors etc.
Now you can Hide all your data to be accessed by anyone else until he knows the secrete folder location.
Once you want to get it back on My computer, just remove the mount folder by same method on Disk management and add the A/B/C/D any partition again.
