In this tutorial, you will learn one more use of the Command Prompt.

We will use the command diskpart in the Command Prompt to hide/show one or multiple drives in the Explorer. This can be useful if you want to hide secret data in a special partition that you can create using the Disk Management utility in Windows.

The good thing about this method is you will never need a third-party tool to do this for you, just remember these commands, you never know when you will need them.

Here we will hide the drive F:, it’s a Flash Drive, but you can use this method on any drive or partition in your system.
