  3. This isn't an article about "hiding partitions", it's about " hiding volumes " which is not the same and the false title makes it show in searches for unhiding partitions (diskpart, "detail part", hidden: yes)

    1. Exactly my partition is hidden and when I followed the above tutorial I got Virtual Disk Service Error:
      The Object is not found and substituting partition in place of volume returns this message "VOLUME- Manipulate volume attributes.
      DISK- Manipulate disk attributes. So my question I have is how do you change hidden to no instead of yes?

After, sometimes, you only find errors when other people points you to .. Special if you make those mistake while working diligently with your soul and heart ..

    3. +Agrock ... Give me some time to build up a VM and test the approach before, I know by heart how to Unhide the partition ..So, I don't give wrong info again ..

    4. I found this to work "Set Id=ebd0a0a2-b9e5-4433-87c0-68b6b72699c7"


    1. Yasmin, I guess you could add into the contribution as not everyone will follow your link ..

How to Complete Uninstall VMware Workstation from Kali Linux, Ubuntu 15 - 16 and Debian 7/8

VMWare Workstation doesn't ship in a deb, so it isn't registered in dpkg (which is why you can't find it in the software center). It does have an install and uninstall utility though. To uninstall VMWare Workstation, you will need to run: sudo vmware-installer --uninstall-product vmware-workstation If you just run: vmware-installer by itself, it will print all the options you have available.
