    Yes. All hiding the drive does is tell Explorer not to list it. If you have permissions and type (for example) v:\ into the window you will still be able to access and browse that folder. There is a separate GPO which is used to "prevent access to drive letters" which prevents users from accessing the drive but this would cause you more problems from how I understand you use the drive.

    Regards,

    Dave

    Good point.
