Which partition do you want to hide and hide from whom/what?
Do you have other operating systems?

hide from WHO and WHAT
the "naughty bits " from the kids ( or spouse)

Or

the REALLY illegal "naughty bits " from the police

the two are VERY different scenarios.

Hi Abhikohokade;
You don't say which version of SUSE/openSUSE you're using or which desktop you prefer (kde, gnome, ??). Please always put as much information in your posts as possible to help us know how to answer your questions. I can only tell you how to do it in kde.

The way to hide a partition is to make its mount unreadable/unwritable to both "group" and "others". Read about permissions in the openSUSE documentation at: http://doc.opensuse.org/

Or create partitions that require root password.
I have created partitions on my machine which I named partimage that require root password to mount.
Also I didn't chmod the partition so without root password it can't be accessed.

but if one dose NOT encrypt it then it will be readable by anyone
just not easealy gotten to

so to "hide" it ??? ( put a . in front of the folder )
keep it safe , that is different.
