    Here is an easy manual/tutorial on how to lock and hide your hard-drives for whatever reason u may have.
    Follow these steps below:

    1.open Registry (go to run command, type "regedit" and press enter)

    2.then go to this key:
    Code:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer
    3.now click the right click button and create DWORD Value (blue color)

    4.Rename it as "NoViewOnDrive" (for locking drive)or
    Rename it as "NoDrives" (for Hiding drive)

    5.double click it and put some numbers to lock ur desired Drive and click ok

    6.Here are the Drive No's. matched with drive letters
    A: 1
    C: 4
    D: 8
    E: 16
    F: 32
    G: 64
    H: 128

    7.finally restart or log-off the computer for this to take effect.

    Hmm, why not just hide folders, or even just use true crypt

    Don't see the point in that, but ok.

    Hmmm, I used TrueCrypt for two weeks just fine, got hit by a virus and was no longer able to access the non-system drive using my password (after cleaning up the system). 120gb of files gone bye bye.

    Okay, so I lock or hide the drive ... now when I want to access it I have to go in and restore the registry setting to its previous state. Do I got that right?

    It hides the entire drive. That is the point....though there are better alternatives in my opinion.
