Hide NAS drive in Win 7 pro workgroup

Hi, we have a NAS drive used for backup & would like to prevent it showing in Windows Explorer.

Individual shares are already hidden with the $ append, but we'd like to 'loose' the drive too.

The NAS is a Buffalo TeraStation Pro, the PC's run Win 7 pro.

Thanks.
