Blegh. Do you know if it's possible to just make Windows ignore a drive unless something specifically needs it?

Its easy to monitor 'after the event' what fired up the drive, but probably not easy stopping it doing it... (especially if its something like Windows Defender going, 'Hey, theres a lot of files on that drive. I've got to check them for you. It'll only take a while....')
