Here is the step by step procedure how to hide any partition/drive :

A DOS window will appear with following discription.

2. Then type “list volume”

The result will look like : ——

Volume 3 E Documents NTFS Partition 30GB Healthy

Then a message will appear in same winwods { Volume 3 is the selected volume}

4. Now type “remove letter E”
Now a message will come { Diskpart Removed the Drive letter }
