Default Hide HDD partitions

To disable the display
of local or networked drives when you click My Computer.
1.Go to start->run.Type regedit.Now go to:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Mic rosoft\Windows\Curre ntVersion\Policies\Explorer
Now in the right pane create a new DWORD item and name it NoDrives(it is case sensitive). Now modify it's value and set it to 3FFFFFF
(Hexadecimal) .Now restart your computer. So, now when you click on
My Computer, no drives will be shown(all gone...). To enable display of
drives in My Computer, simply delete this DWORD item that you created.
Again restart your computer.You can now see all the drives again.

Ok. I was just curious.

Is there anyway to hide just one drive?
