Accessing each drive from different OS.

Hi, I have installed two os (both are windows home premium 32bit) in my computer, just to access my each drive from different os. But the problem is, both my os' accessing all the drives. I spend long hours to find a solution. I tried gpedit to "Restrict D drive only". but i didnt see any changes in my computer.. i can still see my drives... Is it really possible to hide a drive for one os alone?

Thank you!

Hello Rami, and welcome to Seven Forums.

If you like, you could use the same method in OPTION TWO while in the OS that you want to prevent access of a drive letter while in that OS.

System Restore Points - Stop XP Dual Boot Delete

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Hello Brink, Thank you for the post.
Both of my OS are windows 7. By taking your point i tried removing the disk letter from diskmgmt.msc. well it works for me now. Thanks
