If that is all that you want to do, it would be easier to just deny read rights to all limited users on those partitions/drives.

Well thank you, i also figured that out while working on the Properties>Security Settings of certain partitions. –  aibk01 Aug 19 '11 at 18:57

No Problem at all –  aibk01 Aug 19 '11 at 19:12

If you want to disable access to the drive and hide it from My Computer, so that it appears as if the drive doesn't even exist, you can do this with Group Policy settings (in Windows Vista/7 Pro/Business/Enterprise/Ultimate) or using a registry edit (all versions of Windows). Instructions on how to do this are in the related question, How to hide drive for specific users in Windows 7?.
