How to hide my Hard Drive?


You can completely hide the required drive or drives and it will completely remove from your computer. Then no one can see this drive from command prompt, safe mode or through My Computer.

Moreover, if you want, you can see the drives at you discreet

You can do this by modifying your registry. Please follow the below steps;

Go to start > Run and type regedit

Now you have to navigate the following registry as in the following way;


 In the Explorer go to New and in the expand menu go to DWORD Value

In the Edit DWORD Value dialog box, put the value name as NoDrives and put Decimal in Base

In Value data, put the drive value, which you want to hide (E:16, D:8, C:4)

When you restart the computer, you will not be able to see these drives

If you want to make visible the drives put ‘0’ in NoDrive
