<span><b><span>you can hide your "private" files using a nifty little registry hack that will completely remove an entire drive from your computer. The drive will not show up in My Computer, will not be accessible from the command prompt, and won't even show up in Safe Mode! Ok, so here's how to implement the hack: first off, back up your registry as this requires adding a key to the registry. Once you've backed up your registry, open the registry editor by clicking on Start, Run and typing in regedit.<br /><br />Now navigate to the following registry hive shown below:<br />HKEY_CURRENT_USER \Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\<br />Policies\Explorer<br />Right-click on Explorer and choose New and then DWORD Value.<br /><br />Name the new value NoDrives and then double click on it to open the properties dialog box. Click on Decimal for the Base unit.<br /><br />Type in one of the following values depending on that drive letter you want to hide.<br />Code:<br />A: 1, B: 2, C: 4, D: 8, E: 16, F: 32, G: 64,<br />H: 128, I: 256, J: 512, K: 1024, L: 2048, M: 4096,<br />N: 8192, O: 16384, P: 32768, Q: 65536, R: 131072, <br />S: 262144, T: 524288, U: 1048576, V: 2097152, W: 4194304,<br />X: 8388608, Y: 16777216, Z: 33554432, ALL: 67108863If you want to hide drive E, just type in the value 16. The really cool thing about this trick is the fact that you can hide multiple drives by adding the numbers of the particular drives together. For example, if you want to hide drive E and drive G, you would type in the number 80, which is 64 + 16.<br />Restart your computer and your drive will now be hidden! Trying to hide your system drive (C) will not work as Windows has to use this drive to run correctly, so don't store your secret files there!<br />When you want to get your drives back, change the value of NoDrives to 0 or simply delete the value altogether. Of course, having to do this everyday can be a pain, so if you're up for it, you can try and write a registry file that will allow you to insert and delete the value by just double-clicking a file.<br />This trick also works for mapped drives, so if you want to hide mapped drives, you can do it this way (though it might just be easier to disconnect a mapped drive).<br />Enjoy</span></b></span>

File and folder names are not visible in one drive of my pc

For Windows XP:

Open the problematic folder, Press and hold SHIFT key, right-click in empty area and select "View -> Thumbnails". It'll toggle the file/folder names.

Actually its a feature to show/hide file names while in Thumbnails mode.

For Windows Vista and 7:

Open the problematic folder, right-click in empty area and de-select "View -> Hide File names". If the option is not available, then press and hold SHIFT key, right-click in empty area and select "View -> Medium Icons".

Hide Your HDD Partitions Hide your HDD partitions 1. Go to Start > run > type “diskpart”.
a dos window will appear with following like that
DISKPART> 2. Then type “list volume” without quote
It will look like this.
Volume### Ltr Label Fs Type Size Status Info

Volume 0 F CD-ROM
Volume 1 C NTFS Partition 7000MB Healthy
Volume 2 D soft NTFS Partition 8000MB Healthy
Volume 3 E —- NTFS Partition 8000MB Healthy

3. If u want to hide drive E then type “select volume 3′ without quote
then a message will appear in same winwods { Volume 3 is the selected volume} type ” remove letter E” without quote
now a message will come { Diskpart Removed the Drive letter }
sometime it requires the reboot the computer .
Diskpart will remove the letter .Windows XP is not having capabilty to identify the unkown volume.
Don’t afraid ur Data will ramin same .
to Come back the Drive repeat the process . but in 4th step which is shown in this post replace ” remove” to “assign
means type ” assign letter E” without quote
The above method won’t work for the drive containing Operating System and it can also be done using System Manager>Storage Manager
