Icon5 Remove HDD icon in 'My Computer'? help!

This is a bit of a shot in the dark, but I am wondering is anyone knows if its possible to hide the hard-drive icon on "my computer" like u can with folders.

I got 8 hard-drives and 9 with a crappy ass partition that wont go away no matter how many times u format it. its a 100mb partition that previously held the restoration files for an acer media-center piece of crap. rly annoying.

Would really appreciate some help.

Edit: I tried this http://www.wikihow.com/Hide-and-Lock...My-Computer%22

problem here is that i can only hide D and C separately, then the next option is both, or A B C D, A B C D E.

My hardrives are C D E G H J K L. And I want to remove G: the roms are F and I so idk why it even gives A and B as an option.....Microsoft huh..

Norton Ghost can be used to hide any partitions you want.

Reformatting a partition doesn't delete it, it just makes it empty. To delete a partition, try using EASESUS Partition Master (free Home Edition). Then afterwards, you can expand the nearby partitions to take up the extra space regained. After you reboot, the annoying partition and it's icon will be gone.

Code:

I've used it. It's pretty easy to do. Just do right click a partition, select delete. Then select a nearby partition,right click, select resize, and then make it bigger in that window. Close the window with OK. Then do Apply (all) Changes after you review the pending operations. I think that's in the General menu...

Thinking on it, Partition Magic also does it. I've used it in the past. The only thing I don't like about 3rd party partitioning tools is that while they are usually good, they force you to remain dependant on them to get your stuff back. Just something to be careful of - I should have posted this when I mentioned Ghost.

Re: Remove HDD icon in 'My Computer'? help!

Thanks guys! Ill read about em more closely tonight and see what happens.
Thing is i don't want to format the partition thats i actually useful. but im sure i find a way around it. I have a hard time trusting Norton with all the rumors about them programming viruses them-selfs just so ppl will buy their updates, idk how much of that is true tou.

Ill report back with the success and or failure
