Hi daoud,
Fine how are you?

There are number of ways to protect/hide your HDD/Partion/Folders. Here I am giving an example 'How to Hide Your Drive i.e. Partition'. Follow these following simple and easy to use steps:

  1. Go to Start -> Run -> "regedit"
  2. Find: HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/Microsoft/Windows/CurrentVersion/Policies/Explorer
  3. Choose Edit -> New -> DWORD Value and give name NoDrives.
  4. Double click NoDrives and determine which drive that you want to vanish in Value Data.

    Ex: If you wish to vanish drive E:, insert value 16 in Value Data.

    The combination value in "Value Data" are as following:
    A: > 1
    B: > 2
    C: > 4
    D: > 8
    E: > 16
    F: > 32
    G: > 64
    H: > 128
    I: > 256
    J: > 512
    K: > 1024
and so on.........

There are also awailable software on the web for protecting your HDD. To have a look click here.

But be aware using HDD protection softwares, if you missed your password there is no chance to get your data back or to use any how your HDD.

    Hi Daoud,

    Great you did the trick very well, but you have done a minor mistake thats why your both drives C: and E: vanished. Actually the values for drives listed above are in Decimal Base and you have entered the Value in Hexademal Base, i.e. if you want to put in hexadecimal then 16 will became 10.

    Nice, now your drive is not protected it just disappeared from My Computer to access the data on the drive Open My Computer and just type the drive letter in Address box followed by : in your case E: and then press enter key the content of the drive will be displayed.

    wow Daoud thanks, but m unhappy with your ratings, first you have given Fixya, Then now m sure you will rate as thanks for Trying or Inappropriate.

    Anyways I was told you in my first solution thats there is a number of ways to do that. And the tric which i have given you is a registry modification means this value have not been written to specific disk its just written on system partition which contains the registry file, so it will be avial at another PC on which the registry key is not modified.

    To protect HDD there are thirdparties softwares which used to write your password on HDD and so it will be protected at any system. But the dengerious thing about using these software is that if you forget your password then your hdd will be un-useable. Even then you want to try, I have given a link for such type of sofware, you can use it on your own-risk.

    Hi, Friend

    You should ask new question in new thread.

    Anyways, there is a number of reasoins that might cause Bluetooth problems.

    1. First check-out in device manager that the driver is installed currectly, there might not be any 'Yellow Marked' compnent, if you have any one marked with yellow color, means there is missing driver. If so, fix it by re-installing the proper driver.

    2. Then find out the bluetooth device is on and its in the range. If still did not fix, then try step 3.

    3. If driver is ok, then try this link, Microsoft Guides here how to troubleshoot Bluetooth Step by Step.

    Dear friend,

    If you will ask question here, then this will come only to me. No other expert can see your question.

    I requested you before please ask your question in new thread. And I am sorry to inform you that I am not going to answer you any more because for my each answer I got degrade my rating from you. I think I am niether able to under stand your question nor you as after my solution which I think is correct, you gave me a down-grade rating.

    Anyways I again request you to ask your question in new thread.

    Thanks for using Fixya

My laptop Model Compaq 5204NR I want to extend my hardisk. Is it possible to use External Hardisk for this model laptop. If it means how much can i use 1TB hardisk or which is suitable for this laptop....

Yes you can use an external HDD to extend your current HDD. If by extend you mean use the external HDD for storage and such.
However if you wanted to literally extend your current HDD by creating a single partition for both HDDs then it could be extremely problematic because the external HDD will be connected with an USB cable. If you were to accidentally unplug the usb cable then your whole system would crash.

How to format excelstor hardisk?

For your specific operating system, assuming that Windows is running, locate Admistrative Tools -> Disk management.
You should see Disk 0 or Disk 1 with your Excelstor 80GB drive: if you do not have a partition, create one or more partition, assign drive letter(s) and then format using the context menu.
If you do not see the drive in the Disk Management screen, then your Bios has not been setup properly or your drive is not connected properly.
Hope it helps.

Seagate barracuda external 500 gb hard drive usb not seen any longer,cables and power okay , tried on three computers

Verify what Drives have been detected by your Operating System by using Windows: Control Panel -> Admistrative Tools -> Computer Management -> Disk Management -> Your Hard disk(s) will be displayed with all existing partitions and any assigned drive letters.
Your external (or internal) drive must be recognized as having formatted partitions that have a drive letter assigned to each required partition.
Hope it helps: let me know how you go!

MY external hard disk maxtor is not detected

Is this a new Maxtor external drive? It came with a CD. Run the utility.

If there is no data on it that you want to save, you can also blow away the partition and format it:
Right-click [My Computer]
[Disk Management]
Find your external Maxtor Disk inthe list and / or graph
Right-click on the disk and select either "Format" or "Delete Partition"
(try format first) Use "NTFS quick format"

If you delete the partition, then "Create Partition" and then format.
You can assign a drive letter or accept whatever it assignes (probably Drive D)

Hardisk cleaned why?

this may be a hdd physical failure, best to check this would be to connect disk to another computer for a minute and run full HDTACH tests, if it's not damaged, then boot record is damaged, and Partition magic or similar program is needed to delete partition and re-create it

My laptop is aspire 4315...b4 my partition in laptop is 2 w/c is drive c and i change my internal hardisk,my partition is only question is how to make a 2 partition just like mine b4?dri

New/ Fresh harddisk only has 1 partition. If you wish to make another partition from installed hdd, you may need partition manager software to do the task. Lots of partition manager on the web. Just google a free one. Try also Easeus partition manager. is a free software for partitioning. Resizing an hdd is simply using partition managers. You can do drive letter changing, format and volume naming.

You can also do resizing during installation of your OS.
Refer to your nearest technician for tech support.
