Hiding Disk Drives!!!

Follow these steps to hide disk drives...

1.Open Registry and navigate to "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\policies\Explorer".

2.Create a new entry by clicking on edit-> new->"Dword value". Name the value as 3fffffff.Now each drive letter has a number.

3.The value of the key will be the sum of the drive letter numbers. Some of the numbers are :
A:=1, B:=2,C:\4,D:=8,e:=16,f:=32,g:=64,H:=128,I:=256,j:=512,k:=1024,L:=2048 and so on. .....

4.Now if you want to hide "C:" and "D:" , you just have to enter value as '12'(4+8). Enter as decimal value in the dword key and restart windows.

5.To get back your drives just delete the key called "3fffffff".
