    You can hide a partition on drive by removing assigned letter. And unhide by assigning letter back.

    thanks for response, i used to enable / disable using bios sata setting, since iam using h10 optane 32+512gb if i disable @ bios it would turn off isrt settings also it can be per hdd enable or disable, but if there's shortcut/program to enable disable hdd @ os it would be nice, and seems it would be less burden on overall cpu, os & electric consumption if there's way to enable / disable sata or hdd in os level

    You could try and create a powershell script that sets a specific drive offline.
    Would that get your desired result? You could try manually in Disk Management first. I think the overall system performance gain will amount to about zero though.

    And set the powerplan to put it idle after x minutes as well, check your indexing options to make sure that Windows Search doesn't have any links to the drive in question and disable the defragmentation schedule for the drive.
