I am performing some tests/troubleshooting on my machine and would like to hide/disable a few partitions or set them to read-only for a while. How do I go about doing this? All partions reside on the same physical disk.

You could remove the drive letter assignment for the specific partition(s):

  1. Go to Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Computer Management
  2. Expand Computer Management (Local) > Storage > Disk Management
  3. Right click the specific partition you like to hide and select "Change Drive Letter and Paths"
  4. Select the drive letter shown, click "Remove" and click "OK"
