  1. I just bought a external hard drive for my home business and wanted to see if I can get a software that will encrypt and protect certain information on my external hard drive. Does anyone know of software that can be bought to be installed in external hard drives to password protect something?

    Maybe

    Please include Windows version in this forum.

    I'll put it this way.
    ? for XP multi users.

    Can he make this drive unuseable to others ?

    Edit your post with Windows version.

    Take a look HERE for plenty of options. I can`t personally recommend a particular programme as I`ve never used any of them.

    Regards Howard :)

    PCWORLD magazine just rated several encryption programs about a month or two ago. I forget which issue. But they listed 4 or 5 programs.
