Thread: way to hide ext partitions?
12-06-2006, 05:02 PM #1way to hide ext partitions?
ok. hello everyone!
ive got a few questions to ask you "more enlightened" apple folk
ive got a macbook, and i have an external hd hooked to it via firewire. the 200gb ext is in 3 partitions.
-Basic boot(mac journaled, basic OSX only image to boot from)
anywas, when i turn the drive on, it shows all three partitions on the osx desktop. here is my question. is there any way to make it so when i turn the ext hd on, the basic boot partition is hidden. basically i just really wanna see ONLY the osx storage partition on the desktop. i still want access in finder to the ext windows32 partition, but dont really want it on the desktop either.

AFAIK it is not possible to hide individual HDD partitions easily. If you want to hide the removable partitions, go to Finder Preferences > General (Tab) and uncheck the CDs, DVDs and iPods option. They will still ba accessible through the Finder.

You could make a simple AppleScript that would eject the unnecessary partitions with the click of a mouse.I try to Command+Shift+/ when I can.

the eject option is really not an option. i still want to have access, just not a link on the desktop pretty much.
