Hide drives using cmd prompt

1) Go to Start > Run > type "diskpart".
A DOS window will appear with following description.


2) Then type "list volume"
3) Suppose you want to hide drive E then type "select volume 3"
Then a message will appear in same window { Volume 3 is the selected volume}
4) Now type "remove letter E"
Now a message will come { Diskpart Removed the Drive letter }

sometime it requires to reboot the computer.
Diskpart will remove the letter.

Windows XP is not having capabilty to identify the unknown volume.
Your Data is now safe from unauthorised users.

To access the content of hidden Drive repeat the process mentioned above. But in 4th step replace " remove" by "assign".
It means type "assign letter E".

    but we can do it simply by

    My Computer (Right Click) -> Manage
    -> [-]Storage -> Disk Management ->
    Select any Partition or Drive (Right Click) -> Change Drive Letters and Paths -> Remove [ Drive Letter ]
