Here is a cool technique which hides entire hard disk drive partitions by a simple procedure without using Regedit:

  1. Go to Start > Run and type diskpart. A DOS window will appear with following description. DISKPART> CaptureWiz007
  2. Then type list volume sparksspace 
  3. Suppose you want to hide drive E:, type select volume 3. A message will now appear in the window saying “Volume 3 is the selected volume”.
  4. Now type remove letter E. You may have to reboot the computer.
