Hide "swap" drives under VISTA
I have a small partition set aside for Photoshop's swap disk. Is it possible
to hide it in Windows Explorer? I don't want it to be unavailable to
Photoshop or VISTA - I just don't want it to be used for something else.

Thanks
Steve

You can hide the partition by removing the drive letter but I think
Photoshop would complain. Try it in Device Manager / Disk Management.
Right click the drive and select "Change Drive Letter and Paths" and
then "Remove". If it fails you can always reverse it and add the drive
letter back.

If you don't point any other application to the drive it won't be used
but Vista will always create some directories on a partition with a
drive letter. You get a Bin and a SysVol directory by default (I think).
