    Lightbulb How to hide Drives using the 'NoDrives' Registry key in Windows

    Ramesh.MVP just posted a nice link which I wanted to share.

    NT Drive Calculator - A calculator to find the registry value for the NoDrives Key in Windows NT for hiding specific disk drives.



    Hiding the individual physical,removable or optical drives in My computer is possible in Windows XP using the "NoDrives" registry entry. This entry hides the specified drives from My Computer, Windows Explorer, and in the Send To menu.

    Does this work with Win7 ? I have a strange issue on a Win7 notebook Samsung I helped configure. for no obvious reason, an extra disk has appeared, Q:, that points to really nothing. At reboot, it is not there, but appears after some time (I think). Is this a known problem by chance ?
