How to hide a partition in Windows XP ?

Method 1:
1. Download and install TweakUI from Microsoft, or one of these links: MegaUpload 1 / MegaUpload 2

2. Go to Start -> run, type tweakui and press OK

3. In TweakUI go to My Computer -> Drives and uncheck the partition you want to hide

Method 2:
The second method would be with Hide Folders XP, you can find it HERE
1. Download it, install it, run it, register it

2. When you run it, i think it's gonna ask for a password, after you set the password press Add, select the partition (or the folder) you want to hide and press OK

3. Now right click on it in the list and check one of the options:
- Hide object
- Lock object
- Hide and lock object
- No object protection

4. Go to Tools -> Settings and do the following settings:
If protection is disabled on quit: select Enable protection
Check Ask password when uninstall
In the Advanced tab, check Protect files and folders in Windows Safe Mode
In the Startup tab, check all the options

5. Press OK and restart
