    You can hide a drive and prevent access to its contents by doing the following in Windows Xp:
    Goto Start--> Run. Type in "gpedit.msc" (Assuming you have xp pro)
    Now in Group Policy Editor:
    Goto User Configuration --> Administrative Templates --> Windows Explorer.
    In the list Enable "Hide these specified Devices..." and "Prevent Access to drives.." and select your drive.

    Although this setting will make your drive to appear locked; an experienced user might still be able to gain access to it!
