How to hide server drives in Windows 9 Years, 11 Months ago Karma: 6
You can easily hide server drives within GO-Global (using the Cluster manager) but you cannot hide the drive which has the Windows OS or GO-Global installed; C:\. One workaround is to use Windows Group Policy Objects to hide specific drives.

    1. Start the Microsoft Management Console.
    2. On the Console menu, click Add/Remove Snap-in
    3. Add the "Group Policy Object" snap-in for the default domain policy. To do this, click Browse when you are prompted to select a Group Policy Object (GPO). The default GPO is Local Computer.
    4. Open the following sections: User Configuration, Administrative Templates, Windows Components, and Windows Explorer.
    5. Click to select the Hide these specified drives in My Computer check box.
    6. Select "Enable" then "Pick one of the following combinations"
    7. Click the appropriate option in the drop-down box
    8. Click OK

Be sure to enable the option "Apply Group Policy" in the Cluster Manager (Tools -> Server Options -> Session startup tab)
