Easiest thing to do is create a group, and add the users you want to restrict to a certain drive.... Like RestrictedDDrive. Add the users you want to NOt see that drive, and then in NTFS Security, add this group, and select "Deny" at the top, and you should be good.... You wont be affected.

It is much easier from a management stance to use groups, even on a local machine.....

If the file format on the disks is NTFS, you can right-click on any file or folder and modify the Security of the file/folder under Properties. By default, system users have access to local drives. If you want to restrict a local user from accessing a particular file/folder, you can add their account to the list of users and give them no privileges. You will also need to ensure that they do not have Administrator rights on the computer.

I think you should use some third party software like folder lock.
