You can't do this with the security that win95 gives you.  You need to download some shareware that will do it for you.  Go to the following link and check out the program "Magic Folders", it may do exactly what you need.

You can use Partition Magic to "hide" a partition. It is NOT accessible to any operating system, including Windows 85, until you unhide it.

The first address was the ordering page. For a comprehensive look go to http://www.jpeters.com/pm.html
You can do one click partitioning with this software.
