How To Hide The HP TOOLS DRIVE

HP Recommended

This HP TOOLS drive was hidden from a long time. It didn't appeared on MY COMPUTER from the day I bought my computer. My laptop is just 20 days old. Now after using it for this long the laptop the HP TOOLS DRIVE pops out from nowhere. It keeps me irritated as I have no use of this drive and I want this drive to be hidden.

 

Can someone please help me in hiding it?? An easy way of hiding would be nice. :smileyindifferent:

Thank you very Much. I have now hide both my recovery partition and HP tools partiton. They would now be safe from external harm. The video help was awesome. It's better to run the DOS method than to use DISK management system.

 

You are awesome!!  :manlol:
