I just installed Kali Linux on a Live USB and when I'm booting from it I can see all of my files from my main SSD from which I'm running Windows 10.

What should I do so that my SSD won't be visible when I'm booting from the Live USB?

Also, can Kali write on the SSD?


Your hard drive partitions will be visible when you live boot. However, as far as I can recall, they are never mounted by default. If you want to completely hide the SSD, remove it from your system.

Yes. Kali can write to SSD if and only if you mount your SSD drive.
