Windows Tips; How To Hide Your Local Drives

Hello thecybergal readers, on this post thecybergal wanna share you simply Windows tips to hide your local drive. Although this tips quite simple, but I thought it would help you to at least secure your data in the selected drive from unauthorized user (just from newbie user of course :D).
Ok, let’s get it done by following these steps:
  1. Open Registry (Start > Run > type "regedit" > [press the enter button]).
  2. Before you make any changes to your Windows registry, make sure you have back it up. (File > Export) and give any names.
  3. Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer
  4. Modify or make new DWORD Value named "NoDrives".
  5. For the Value, use method bellow (2^n):
    n = 0 : Drive A = 2^0 => 1
    n = 1 : Drive B = 2^1 => 2
    n = 2 : Drive C = 2^2 => 4
    n = 3 : Drive D = 2^3 => 8
If you want to hide drive C, then the value of NoDrives = 4. If you want to hide drive D, then the value of NoDrives = 8. But if you want to hide drive C and D, then the value of NoDrives should 4 + 8 = 12. Hope you understood ^_^.

That’s all Windows tips today, hope you can get a bit of Windows science. See you in the next thecybergal's Windows tips.
