Need help with batch file to make partition disappear.
Posted on 2004-04-23
I'm running XP Pro, I would like to know if there is a way to make your operating system hide the data partition (D:\ ) so that if a virus was to infect the machine it would not infect the data partition because it would be invisible to the system. I set up my OS in the c:/ drive and loaded all the apps onto it also. I created a second partition as the D drive. There is 93Gb of space on D: and 20GB of space on C. if this is important.
I need to be able to just hit an Icon or just a button and my D: partition will disappear but actually still be there. It is important that there is a icon or shortcut that would allow me to do this anytime without causing damage to the OS or hard drive.
I was told that there is a way to tweak the registry in XP Pro to allow this to happen. Is this true and how would I go about doing this. I would appreciate any help provided.
I was told that there is a way to create a batch file that will create an icon or button that can make the drive appear to be invisible. I've never created a batch file, is this something that can be done?
