On my desktop I have an external drive name 4TB_Drive. On the same desktop I have a backup drive for the first one named 4TB_Drive_BU. I'd like to hide the icon to prevent accidentally accessing and changing files there, having it still be accessible to my backup software
When I try and use the routine "chflags hidden" method, I get a "Permissions Denied" response. All permissions for the drive are R/W.
