    thanks for this easy tool. i haven’t yet installed it though. pls let me know one thing: after i install this soft and hide 1/2 drives, if someone uninstall the soft, what will happen to my drives? will they become visible automatically? Another thing – if system (OS) crashes, will these drive show up after reinstalling windows 7? pls let me know soon.
