    I dont use HideCalc but it creates the adm for you so you dont have to manually edit one yourself. To answer your question, all you do is add up the values or easier then that just type in the binary value and convert to decimal.

    Here I edit the WindowsExplorer.admx and WindowsExplorer.adml directly to make the required changes.

    Note you can not only Hide but there's also a 'Prevent access on drives in My Computer' and i think the adm value for that one is NoViewOnDrives.

    How do I hide or prevent access to specific drive letters? | Group Pol

    No, but even if we did, I'd want something automatic rather than relying on teachers to disable/enable at the ends of the lessons.
