Hi.

"hide a network drive"? You mean User A connects a network share as a drive letter in explorer and...user B, in his own session, should not be able to use it? Please explain.

The only way I know to hide a network share is sharing with $ at the end of share name. This causes only clients or users know exact name can connect.

Hiding Shares is not possible. The $-Shares are visible, use the command
net view \\servername /all
to see those as well.

The aforementioned $-Suffix is suitable for hiding in Explorer, if that's all you want.

If you use Group Policy to create drive maps, it has an option to hide all drives. That will hide your local and network drives.

user configuration - preferences - drive maps
