To hide a partition

  • 1. Select a disk and a partition.
    2. Click Partition > Advanced > Hide Partition.
    3. Click OK.

    1. To unhide a partition, repeat the steps above but click Unhide Partition in step 3.
    2. If you hide a Windows NT boot partition, you must manually edit your BOOT.INI file to point to a new Windows NT boot partition.
    3. Unless you are running Windows NT/2000/XP, unhiding multiple primary partitions may cause your machine to be unbootable.
    4. PowerQuest recommends running DriveMapper when you are prompted. Hiding a partition can make your drive letters change, causing applications not to run because application shortcuts, initialization files, and registry entries refer to incorrect drives. DriveMapper, a utility included with PartitionMagic, helps you easily update drive letter references. Under most conditions, DriveMapper will run automatically after you hide or unhide a partition.
    5. Windows 2000 does not recognize a partition you have hidden using PartitionMagic. Therefore, the only effective method to hide a partition from use under Windows 2000/XP-without deleting it-is to remove the partition's assigned drive letter.
