File/Folder Encryption Software...

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I have an external hard drive that I want to lock down, or at least the folders.

Can anyone recommend a good free or cheap program. Just want to have to enter a password when I try to access to the directory.

Thanks.

I did give it a try, but I wasn't very comfortable with it. Was going to read through the tutorial again.

But that seems to be one of the top choices.

i believe you can install truecrypt to the drive (like a portable installation) and run it whenever you need to open the drive.

I recommend truecrypt too.

download and install truecrypt and make a separate partition on your external. Then, encrypt the entire partition. It won't show up until you mount it and mounting it requires your password.
