Hide 2nd Hard Drive

Hi Everyone,
I've ordered a 2nd hard drive for storing backup images of my computer on and some work documents etc. It's a SATA internal drive.

I was wondering if I could make it only visible to my login and hide it from other users on my computer so that they cannot access it?
