Hide Partition

Hide Partition can be extremely useful if you have some confidential files or sensitive information on the local disk. After you hide a partition, the partition will be invisible to all visitors until you manually unhide it, so others cannot see the sensitive files. If one day you want to use it again, simply unhide it and it will then show up again in My Computer and Explorer.
