I suddenly saw that a system partition became shown, although it was along with another HP tools partition hidden as it is shown in this screenshot below:

Also, I have post the screenshot of my entire disk::

The HP tool partition is only still now hidden
I clikced on the folder options, then I chose the 'view' tab, after I checked the three options above.
The option 'show hidden files and folders' was checked before system partition have becom shown under my computer. So I think this option doesn't do anything with showing or hidding partitions.

How can I let it be hidden again.

There is a freeware to manipulate all the drive partitions and their properties. You can even hide any undesired partition to keep your files hidden.

Download software from here and install it on your PC.
From the open list, right click on any of your desirable partition, navigate to modify and chose 'Hide Partition'.

See image for your reference. Off course, you can unhide partition whenever you want.

Good Luck!!
