I do not know any way to do that but is it necessary to hide them to non-admin accounts?

You can just disable read and write access to account specified if you have multiple accounts on drive's properties. This way non-admin account can see the drive but cannot have access to it. I hope I'm right and hope this help.

What kind of drives are they? It's a second physical disk? A partition of a single disk? Something else?

@LogicEarth

yeah I did it , Deny access for that user and allow for all
we have to click ""Find now"" users,groups.etc inside it
then add that user and deny access
enjoy

@Alejandro085 its partion dude , but remember u can add these security to portable HDD and internet HDD too
it works
e.g. if u allow acess to only that pc's single admin
and then u boot into another OS , that time u will even able to access those drives
u have to apply settings carefully
