Use disks to hide the partition in Ubuntu

You want to remove the Windows 7 partition from the left left pane in Nautilus, where it can be mounted even when it’s not in /etc/fstab. You want to hide the partition so they don’t appear in Nautilus or elsewhere through Ubuntu.

Start Dash the first option on the Launcher

Type Disks and you will see the application Disks appear. Click on it.

A screen similar to this appears:

Open Disks

Left click on a Disk. Then left click on the Partition you want to hide.

Right click on the gear (follows the Left Arrow and -) and select Edit Mount Options and this screen appears:

Uncheck the option Show in User Interface.

Click OK and enter password to apply changes. After the next reboot Nautilus won’t show the partition. Note that this doesn’t erase the partition or delete any data on it.
