Hi...I have two internal hard drives that I've disabled in the BIOS but still show when I boot, and are also accessible. Isn't a BIOS disable one of the ways to not have the drives accessible, let alone show? There are things that happen to my computer that make me believe there could be more to this than just hardware, but I'll expand on that if you have an interest in knowing what I mean. Regardless, though I'm no novice to computers, I've never seen this before and would like your input. I don't want to password protect/encrypt the drives if that's not necessary. Seems to me disabling in the BIOS, the drives shouldn't even show in My Computer when I boot, which is a perfect solution, as I rarely use those extra drives. I use them just enough where enabling them in the BIOS when I need them is a perfect solution.
What might say ye?
