    Not possible, well it is but it's a pain and it requires hard drive encryption software that operates outside of the OS.

    It's easy to stop the user on Drive A from reading Drive B by going into Disk Management on Drive A and removing the drive letter assignment from Drive B. AFAIK this solution will not work to stop Drive B's user from viewing Drive A because Windows needs to be able to read Drive A for some reason.... saying that I've never actually tried it that way round.
