I have two partitions and both are appearing in nautilus. On one partition windows is stored and other is for general use D:\drive.

In unity we have option to display mounted drives but I want ONLY ONE DRIVE TO APPEAR that is D:\ drive . Can this be done ????

Yes it can be done.

Unity by defualt show the mounted paritions and disks that are mounted on /media so to change that You have to mount the partition that you dont want to appear in place other than /media.

You can use /mnt for example

umount /media/Drive-C
mount -t type(ext4 or whatever) /dev/sd* /mnt

To automount this partition edit your /etc/fstab and change the old path (/media) of this partition to the new path (/mnt)
