This question has appeared in a different form but didn't quite meet my need.
One of my clients has hidden the C: drive on all the network computers so that they can't load programmes or data there.
I need to do some testing on my programme to see the effect of this and wish to load it onto my D: drive logged on with admin rights, and then hide it for a user without admin rights, then switch to that user and carry out the tests, then make it visible again. The programme on the hidden drive will have a shortcut on a visible drive otherwise they couldn't boot it of course.
The client has XP and I have Win7
