Making hidden drive visible

Recommended Posts

zakyr    1

I have a 14GB mSATA SSD which I hid using Windows' Group Policy from showing up in My PC simply because I wasn't using it. Now when I go back to unhide it it won't let me. The setting 'Hide Drives in My Computer' in Group Policy editor somehoe appears "Not configured" as well. Could someone help me with this issue? Image attached for reference.

 

System specs:

Lenovo Y500

Windows 10

Samsung mSata SSD

WB 500GB Black

Verify your group policy isn’t there or isn’t applying from somewhere else.

Elevated command prompt

Gpresult /h c:\users\userid\desktop\result.html

Change userid to your userid in c: users. When done open up the result file on your desktop and look for the entry.

Don't know what to make out of it. But here it is.

Doesn’t look like anything is being applied.  Have you tried a complete shut down and restart?

Can you assign a drive letter or is that still grayed out?

All grayed out. The only visible options are 'Delete volume' and 'help'.

You may have to clear/default the policies on your computer

Could you walk me through the process please? And will it affect my existing settings?

Being that you have no group policies that I can see being processed, no it will not effect anything.

 

Unfortunately I cannot walk you through it as it can allow people to bypass rules that were pushed by their corporations, albeit temporarily, which is against the rules here.

Alright, thanks nonetheless.
