I have a USB drive with two partitions. The first is unencrypted and has the truecrypt binary. The second is encrypted (with truecrypt) and has sensitive data.

When I plug in my USB drive the encrypted partition shows up in Windows. I do not want it to show up. I can remove the drive letter, but if I plug it into another PC it shows up again.

Already looked at hidden volume, and it's not what I'm looking for. I'll have a look at the second link. Thanks. – anurag kohli Dec 14 '11 at 12:57
Although FbinstTool creates a hidden partition, I have to export files to access it. This doesn't work for me. – anurag kohli Dec 14 '11 at 13:38

This link may also help.

It is not exactly an hidden partition, but due to certain limitations of Windows, it can be used as a hidden partition.

With this method it is easy to access the data on the hidden partition.
