Secret Windows Hard Disk Partition using Windows Disk Management System

How to make a Secret Windows Hard Disk Partition ? In this post I will answer this question with the help of very simple trick to Hide and Unhide Hard Disk Partition in Windows without any software or programming. In the earlier post I have already described how to make Linux Partition made visible in Windows. As have one partition in Linux File format is also a way to hide Hard disk partition in windows but the method is not recommended as you have to format the partition in a format that windows doesn’t recognize. We all need some sort of privacy and on hard disk also we want to have a partition of the folder which is hidden from everyone. You can easily make Folders hidden from others by typing a simple command and even from windows settings that folder will not be visible unless a command is again typed in Command Prompt. 

In this article I am going to use Windows OS Disk Management System to hide the hard disk partition without using any external software and there will be no loss of data. The trick is that the windows operating system doesn’t recognize any hard drive partition without drive letter. It’s strange but true and works perfectly fine. All you need to have is administrative privileges to do so and please don’t try this trick on the partition where the Operating System is installed.
