Hide Local Hard Drives in My Computer

There are a certain times when someone else is watching our computer and in our own mind we are wishing "oh god! i wish there was a way to hide that local drive". We all have certainly been through that time and the possibility is that we will be facing it occasionally in future. So, this can be established by little bit of registry tweaking. You can actually hide your whole drive, or you can even hide all of you drives at once. The simple way to do it via registry is to create a key at the specific place in the registry which will be explained later in the post. And whenever you want the drive to appear you can simply open the registry and delete the key.

 Steps to hide local hard drives in my computer:

1. Open Registry editor.(how to start registry editor?)
2. Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER > Software > Microsoft > Windows > CurrentVersion > Policies > Explorer.
3. Right click on the right side pane and add a new DWORD (32-bit) value.
4. Name the DWORD as "Nodrives" and give it the of the drive value you want to hide.
[ Value format = 03ffffff ("drivevalue")]
(Put the drivevalue according to chart below)

ALL: 67108863

A: 1, B: 2, C: 4, D: 8, E: 16, F: 32, G: 64, H: 128, I: 256, J: 512, K: 1024, L: 2048, M: 4096, N: 8192, O: 16384, P: 32768, Q: 65536, R: 131072, S: 262144, T: 524288, U: 1048576, V: 2097152, W: 4194304, X: 8388608, Y: 16777216, Z: 33554432

If you want to hide multiple drives just add their value:

For eg: if you want to hide drive A and D then their dword value would be A + D = 1 + 9 = 10 
Hence their DWORD value would be "03ffffff (10)"

5. Restart the computer if it immediately doesn't take effect.

How can i see the drive in hidden mode?

It can be done by simply entering the Drive in adddress bar ( for eg C:\ , D:\ , etc). A simple suggestion would be to not to hide all the drives at the same time since the other user is definitely going to be suspicious.
