    Howdy,

    I want to hide the Bootcamp drive icon on my OS X. The partition is NTFS so I installed MacFUSE and the NTFS-3G software to be able to read and write from it. I went into the Terminal and tried issuing this command:

    /Developer/Tools/SetFile -a V /Volumes/BOOTCAMP

    BOOTCAMP is the name of my drive. I know this because when I enter the command:
    ls -al /Volumes
    This comes up:

    drwxrwxrwt@ 4 root admin 136 Jun 25 10:50 .
    drwxrwxr-t 34 root admin 1224 Jun 24 12:23 ..
    drwxrwxrwx 1 root admin 8192 Jun 25 11:11 BOOTCAMP
    lrwxr-xr-x 1 root admin 1 Jun 25 10:50 Macintosh HD -> /

    But then it says "No such file or directory"

    Am I doing something wrong? Is there an easier to go about doing this?

    If you rename you HD in Windows with a "." like ".Mac HD" then it will hide in OS X

    And to get it to come back you just erase the "."?
