    Its really hard to understand what it is you want the way you are typing and skipping words that would make up a legible sentence. I literally read your questions (?) as many different ways as possible. All I can conclude is that you would like to hide certain folders when your external (or network) drive is plugged into your system?

    Can you right click on specific folders and tick them as hidden? Then make sure in "folder options" you have selected "Don't show hidden folders & drives"

    Is this what you are asking buddy?
