    Default How to create an invisible DRIVE and FOLDER

    Yes, it is possible to craete invisible drives that remain there only but nobody can see it.

    The idea of creating this invisible drive struk my mind when I came to knew how to create a invisible folder. So i must first tell you how to create an invisible folder. To create an invisible folder first create a folder say“Ritesh”. Now right click on the folder and select Rename. Now while pressing ALT click 0160 (ALT+0+1+6+0) and hit enter. You will get a folder with no name. so our half process is done now you need to hide the folder to hide it right click the folder and click on
    properties > customize > change icon


    Now look for an empty space in the change icon dialog box and click on it and then click ok. Now you are done you will have an invivsible folder.
    So you have created an invisible folder. Now, after creating invisible folder the idea of making invisible hard drive is quite simple
    The only 2 problem are that
    • How to change drive icons.
    • How to remove drive letters.

    Try to Refresh Explorer. The folder or drive may splash their existence.
    Group Policy/ Reg Editing are better option to do so...

    Hide and Restrict logical drive or partition in Windows
