  • Just a simple password tool...

    i have a portable hard drive which i use a lot, now is there a way to put a password on it? like when you plug it in to the pc, the drive appears, but when you double click it, it asks for a password.

    no encryption or anything like that, just a simple password tool

    i would be greatful for any advice/links

    Hi, i think your going to need a third party tool to do this, tons of them around if you google your question

          If you dont encrypt, anyone who gets past the password (e.g. data recovery tools) will access all the content!
