Bios help needed please required help with hardrives

I run a msi -760GM-P23 motherboard , the issue is this i have 3 hard drives i have set the bios setting to boot to which hard drive first.

I can disable two of them but when i load my 3rd hard drive and check c programs i can see the files from the other hard drive even tho they have been disabled.

Is there a way i can disable the hard drives in bios?. so it will close them so you cant see the other hard drives if there... in cprogramme folder?

I really dont want to put the power cable source cable out of two hard drives all the time ..
ok thanks

opening the side case everytime removing the power cord and the other cable , from the back of the harddrive , but then i was ready to but a new pc only to find that the cables after a month were worn and not clicking in correctly from the amount of removing in this time.

So there must be a way to leave all cables on set it in bios so that you can disable the hard drive , and run one hard drive with out seeing the other hard drive files , when going to c drive. on that one working hadrive.

You can disable hard drives in Device Manager.

I've never done it, so I can't tell you if that will do exactly what you need.

this will still show the (files) as there is power to the hardrive , there must be a way to set this so it stops the other files from showing when you have one hard drive running only , even if they others are connected.
