How to hide a drive on from my computer

Hello friends, today we are going to discuss about hiding a drive from computer.

Why we have to do this?

In our home all our friends and family members can use our computer. So its not a safe environment for your personal files. So we have to hide that from them. After doing this trick the specified partition is hidden from my computer and nobody knows there is one another partition there. So you can use that partition for your own personal only.

How to do this?

Step 1: Open run prompt ( windows key + R)

Step 2: Type gpedit.msc and hit enter, a group policy window will appear.

Step 3: From that window just open the following path:

User Configuration ==> Administrative Templates  ==>  Windows Components  ==>  Windows Explorer
