Hiding a drive partition in Vista

Recommended Posts

Is there any easy way to hide a partition in Windows Vista? As far as I know it is possible to do this by using the policy editor in order to hide the partition for all users, but I want to do this for a specific user.

How can I do that?

AFAIK, hiding volumes is a global setting only... but it may be possible to script the action you're after using logon/logoff script for said user.

If all you need is limiting access to a given partition, you can simply play with user or group rights. If you want it invisible, I'm not sure how to do it on a standalone pc. With group policy in active directory it's a breeze.
