    Default Make ur DRIVE disappear in Windows Vista

    Today I'm going to share a simple tutorial with you all. It will tell you how you can hide a Drive in Windows Vista. This will be helpful to you in case u want to hide your personal stuff from others, just put all that stuff in a drive and make it disappear .There may exist some third-party tools but this tutorial is as simple as any other thing could be.



    Here's how u can do this>>>

    * Click on Start button, type gpedit.msc in the search box and press Enter
    * Click on Continue to bypass the UAC prompt.
    * In the left pane, navigate to User Configuration>> Administrative Templates>> Windows Components>>Windows Explorer.
    * In the right pane of the window double-click on Hide these specified drives in My Computer
    * In the dialog box that appears click on Enabled.
    * Select the drives you wish to hide from the drop-down menu given just below in the same dialog box
    * Click on Apply and OK and then close the Local Group Policy Editor.
    * To check if it worked or not you can open up My Computer and see if the drive that you selected to hide is there or not.

    @dmudgal
    I meant to hide any other specific drives like H and S Is this possible with Group Policy?
    One more disadvantage of group policy is it's not visible or available Vista home basic and XP home basic versions..
