    Hide Partition in Places


    Hi All,

    I'm hoping to be able to hide a partition in places. It's one of those really small 1 gig things that Toshiba installs for diagnostic and such. I'm tempted to remove it but I'm not positive that it won't screw something up on the computer and it's not mine. Is there a way to hide an individual partition? Thanks all

    Every partition has an identification byte. Your partitioning
    software can set this byte to whatever you choose. Some of
    these types are for hidden partitions.
