How to Lock/Hide your drives using Mountvol
 
This tip/tweak is for advance users only. Try this tip if you have experience with computers, and understands the consequences.

This trick works with almost all latest versions of Windows.

  • Go to Start-> Run-> cmd and press Enter.
  • Type mountvol in command window and press enter.
  • Now you can see all the drives in your system with the corresponding ID’s. mountvol
  • Now suppose you want to hide your G: drive, note down the volume id for that drive. In my case for G: drive the volume id is \\?\Volume{96c924d1-7f19-11de-808a-806e6f6e6963}\
  • This step is very important. If you don’t note down your volume id you will not be able to get your partition back.
  • Now the final step to hide your drive. Type mountvol G: /d to hide the G: drive.
  • To get your hidden drive back type mountvol g: [volume id]. For me it is \\?\Volume{96c924d1-7f19-11de-808a-806e6f6e6963}\. SO it will look something like mountvol g: \\?\Volume{96c924d1-7f19-11de-808a-806e6f6e6963}\
  • Be very careful while performing this trick.

Most important: Never try to hide your System Drive (The drive in which your OS is loaded). You may corrupt your PC. So use it wisely.
