    Doing some early Spring cleaning (for us in the southern hemisphere) and installed Windows 7 on my Mac Pro.

    I used the Snow Leopard Boot Camp drivers and everything runs well, I just have one gripe which is the HFS+ support.

    I don't need to read my Mac drives from Windows and alothough it is read only, it is making me feel a little uneasy. Does anyone know a way I can hide these HDDs or am I stuck with this?

    That's a good question. I felt the same way - especially before I re-read the part about them being read-only.

    You can disable the Mac drives from within the device manager.
    Find a drive, double-click on it, choose the tab labelled "Driver"
    and then click the disable button.
