Windows 10: hide empty drives
hide empty drives
Hello, I usually work with hidden files enabled, and would like to hide empty drives, but it seems my Win 10 Single Language doesn't have this feature, is this normal?
Exactly that, I don't have any option to hide empty drives. And I searched all the options. :/
For Spanish, it should show as "Ocultar unidades vacías".
Check using OPTION THREE in the tutorial I posted above to see if you have the HideDrivesWithNoMedia DWORD to set it with instead.
Thanks Brink, but seems like something is not right, and yesterday I reinstalled Win 10.
This is how it looks enabled and disabled, they simply fade a bit, but can't make them hide, maybe a driver is missing?
You could remove the drive letters in Disk Management but you must ensure you're not going to use those drives and also that the associated letters will not affect the environment path of any other drive.
It looks like you have set Windows to show hidden files, folders, and drives. Using step 3 in OPTION THREE of the tutorial below should hide them for you.
Brink's suggestion is the more secure way as you may be disabling card reader/sd card slots by removing drive letters.
Thanks, I'll give it a try, I do want to work with hidden folders, it's just those unused card readers that were not there before Win 10.
Have a great week!
I used your reg file
but it does not hide empty drives from card readers
My usb hub has card reader slots which does not currently have any cards or drives in it
how to hide these drives?

I successfully upgraded from Windows 8.1 to 10 last week.
For the 1st time since the upgrade, I tried emptying my recycle bin. However, it *appears* to fail, in that the dialog box that pops up shows "Discovered 0 items (0 bytes)" indefinitely....
