Password Protecting my External Hard Disk?

Recommended Posts

Is there any software for protecting my external hard disk from someone else using it?

I stay in a hostel and I really don't want someone else to view my personal files. Is there any way of encrypting it so that only I can use my hard disk?

Yes, you can try Truecrypt and use the software to encrypt it or you can encrypt the files separately by right clicking the file or folder, going to advanced, then there should be an option to encrypt the file however this depends on your OS.
