  1. External Hard Drive Help??

    I just recently bought an external hard drive and i was wondering if it is possible to put a security password on it.

    It has all my personal files (ie. bank statements, tax logs ect.) on it and i dont want anyone to be able to access it when i am not home (ex. my sons or his friends)

    Any help would be great.



    p.s. this is the one i bought if thats any help

    File Lock Encryption for the entire drive.. With password
    I found this one is opensource (meaning it's for free)

    Seems very popular.. So you can encrypt that drive to protect it!
