comment what does this sort command mean? cat temp.txt | sort -t$'\t'
@user3872279 but single quotes don't allow for escape sequences as well: if you write '\t' you get a backslash and a t, if you write $'\t' you get a tab character

Tab character can be represented with 7 bits (it is actually ASCII 9), and using a dollar sign before a a ' quoted string will result in escape codes being interpreted correctly inside it (that is, $'\t' is actually the same as "\t")

comment Two Windows in two partition isolated from each other
this is the less crazy approach to hide a partition (changing the partition number is not going to improve security), but as I said it doesn't improve much security against malware, and since the question specifically included that goal I think it should be noted in the answer

@AVee if you want to avoid common crap you just need to have a little common sanse, and avoid downloading and executing said crap. Changing the partition type is useless, you can use the approach proposed by gronostaj and unmount partition if you are ok with that. But save yourself some pain and use a virtual machine to run stuff you are not secure it's safe (see EliadTech's answer)

comment Two Windows in two partition isolated from each other
@gronostaj since a lot of people are using dual boot and virtual machine systems it makes A LOT of sense developing a malware specifically targeting those users. And it makes even more if people think they are safe as long as they cannot see the drive on "My Computer". And please, "would significantly increase its size"? Don't make me laugh. Are you really going to realize you are infected because your hard disk occupied size increased by one megabyte or so? Or because your download speed decreased for a while? Viruses are continuously downloading malware and other crap from the web.

comment Is it possible to run two windows sessions from the same computer at the same time?
The answer is correct even for physical connection: the Windows EULA does not allow for more than one user at the same time

comment VirtualBox - VT-x is being used by another hypervisor
some malware or even some antivirus can install itself as hypervisor. May be the case?

@TheGoodUser-Sp for example, by downloading a filesystem driver, and using it to do low-level access to the disk. There is no need for a program to use the operating system to read a disk: it is only much easier

comment Two Windows in two partition isolated from each other
It doesn't matter if OS knows whether it's NTFS or not. The virus will try to see if it's NTFS anyway. Doing this is DANGEROUS because it put the user in a false sense of security. It wouldn't even take one hour work to make a virus able to workaround this trick. Nothing that is writable by the infected machine can be deemed as safe.

comment Two Windows in two partition isolated from each other
because if a virus developer knows that you indeed have two windows installations in different partitions he can easily find and infect the other partition too. It wouldn't be so strange if there was some virus around which can already make your little trick useless: some viruses can find virtual machines and infect them too from the host machine. Looking for other partitions is much easier in my opinion.
