Hi there,

this is probably a real easy one, but dont see it in the knowlege base.
I am trying to hide the C drive from My computer, but would still like to see the Floppy and CD rom. I know you can hide ALL drives using Poledit but aside from a third party piece of software, is there perhaps a reg key change or something in which you can hide CERTAIN drives and not ALL at the same time?

Help appreciated.

Alex.

Mmmm Ok Tweak seems to do the trick, until you logo off and on again. I guess my question would be why do the Tweak settings not stay after a reboot?

Suggestion: always backup the registry BEFORE editing.
