Hide Drives is a simple-to-use application which enables you to hide drives from Windows Explorer.

It is quite useful when you share your computer with other people, since it provides one of the simplest and most effective methods for protecting sensitive data from pry eyes.

The installation procedure is rapid and does not require special attention. Hide Drives is wrapped in a user-friendly GUI which consists of a small window with a neatly structured layout.

The hidden drive letters will not be visible in Explorer or any other application that use the common Windows 'Save', 'Save As', or 'Open' dialog boxes.

The entire process is very simple. All you have to do is select the letters corresponding to the drives you want to hide (buttons for checking and deselecting all items are available), and click a button to hide them from the file manager. Alternatively, you can just lock them.

Making the drives visible again is done in a similar manner. User log off is required to commit any new changes. At program startup you have to establish a master key that will be asked for every time you access HDHide Drives. It is possible to change it at a later time. There are no other notable options available throgh this tool.

HDHide Drives has a good response time and works smoothly. It uses low CPU and RAM, so it does not burden the overall performance of the PC. No issues were shown in our tests, and the utility did not hang or crash. Thanks to its intuitive layout and overall simplicity, HDHide Drives can be handled even by novices.
