Hiding a partition in Vista
« on: April 25, 2009, 07:39:10 PM »
I'm running Vista Ultimate 64-bit

I made an 11GB partition on my Windows HDD (RAM X 2.5 + 0.5GB(see left))

Is there some way that i can hide this partition in Explorer as it's just annoying having it there as there is nothing that i can "see" in it.

Works ok in XP, not tried in Vista.

And a lot more here including Regedits.

Good luck

Oh, does your 11gb partition contain system files?  If so then it can't be hidden.
