Guys,

I have an external HDD with 3 partitions, and I would like to have only one of this partitions to appear in my Desktop.

Is it possible?

Thanks in advance!

If you believe you can do something, you can.
If you don't think you can do it, you can't.
Either way, you're right!

I'm not at my computer but if the partitions are mounted seperately then you can eject the ones you don't want to see. Were they created with Mac filesystems? Do they have different names?

answers for your questions are: yes / yes

The problem is that if you eject them, they are not available via the Finder either.

Do you just want the one on your desktop but the others available via the Finder?

that's right!

As an example, I have a partition for time machine! I don't want it showing in my desktop, but I want it available! The same for my bootable clone partition.
