Most of you must have wondered if there exists a way without using software to Hide A Drive completely so that it cannot be viewed or accessed without unlocking it. Well for those who have and who haven’t yet, here is a easiest method on How To Hide Any Drive In Just 3 Steps.

Here we go, follow these 3 simple steps:

After following these 3 steps:

01. Go To Start –> Run or use Win+R keys and type this and press Ok

Note: In Window Vista and higher you will get a security warning, bypass it clicking on allowing.

Once in Diskpart type below text and press Enter:
