    Arrow Hide the Partitions

    This trick is for all those people who want to hide tons of data into their box. So here it is, if you have very important data in your hard drive placed in some partition which you do not want anybody to access then this trick is only for you!

    Just click on start>run type gpedit.msc, now navigate through user configuration> administrative templates > windows components> windows explorer, now double click on “Hide these specified drives in My Computer” modify it accordingly then just below you will find another option “Prevent access to drives from My Computer”, double click on this option and modify it accordingly.
    To make it visible again select "disable" by double clicking on the “Hide these specified drives in My Computer” option.

    May I point out that unless you encrypt the harddrive, using some sort of disk encryption technology (available on all Win/Mac/Linux), a LiveCD will easily pick this up. Should you not want someone to be use a LiveCD in the first place, disable booting from CD from the BIOS and then set a BIOS password. I believe it is possible to crack BIOS passwords, but it will give you reasonable security.
